Every body that receives aid /financial assistance without which the body can not function is a public authority.  For example if the annual budget for that public authority is  minimum 100cr, and out of that Govt aid is Rs.50cr, the authority can not function with out aid of Government.  In other words the contribution by Government must be substantial without which the body ceases to function.  So search in website for that information of that autonomous body as to the financial contribution by Government and controls on the authority by Government.

If you are convinced that the authority (Autonomous body) is covered under RTI Act as it is receiving substantial contribution from Govt. make a complaint to SIC/CIC and pray for bringing the AB within ambit of RTI Act.

For information of members and for precise guidance always mention the name of public authority if you require precise guidance.

I never heard any autonomous body states in rules and regulations that it is beyond the ambit of RTI Act .  If they do not fall within ambit, there is no need to state the same in rules and regulations.
