Namaste Bhaskar ji,
This is not my conclusion - I was only paraphrasing the bhAmati.

ननु सन्तु नाम परीक्षकाणां विप्रतिपत्तयः, प्रकृते तु किमायातमित्यत आह -
त्वन्यस्यान्यधर्मकल्पनां न व्यभिचरति* ।अन्यस्यान्यधर्मकल्पनानृतता, सा
चानिर्वचनीयतेत्यधस्तादुपपादितम् । तेन सर्वेषामेव परीक्षकाणां
सर्वतन्त्रसिद्धान्त इत्यर्थः ।

If you think that your view is different to the commentator's
interpretation, that is fine.

Kind regards,
