The Supreme Court’s Constitution Bench will hear on 9 November the plea of the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government on the contentious issue of who should control administrative services in the city over the transfers and postings of officers in the national capital.
A five-judge Constitution bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, MR Shah, Krishna Murari, Hima Kohli, and PS Narasimha asked the parties to complete the compilation of papers in the case meanwhile, and it will start day-to-day hearings from November 9. “List it on 9 November, at 10:30 a.m. The hearing shall proceed from day to day,” said the bench in its order. Earlier, the apex court bench said that this will be a complete green bench and there will be no papers in this matter.
“Don’t circulate any paper compilations.
We want this bench to be a green bench,” Justice Chandrachud had said.
The top court had said that to make counsels acquainted with technology in the legal proceedings, training would be conducted over the weekend.
