TODAY- 14 JANUARY 2016 - IN CAT, PRINCIPAL BENCH, NEW DELHI

OA/4465/2014  

GOVT FILED ITS AFFIDAVIT TODAY MORNING. DURING THE PRESENTATION THE GOVERNMENT ADVOCATE  STATED THAT THIS BENCH HAS ALREADY DISMISSED A SIMILAR PETITION IN NOVEMBER 2015. JUDGES (i.e. THE BENCH) STATED THAT THIS ARGUMENT CAN BE MADE ON 26TH MARCH 2016 WHEN THE CASE WOULD BE HEARD FOR FINAL DISPOSAL.

OA/847/2015

GOVT DID NOT FILE THE AFFIDAVIT. THE BENCH GAVE TWO WEEK'S TIME FOR THE GOVT  TO FILE THE AFFIDAVIT. THE CASE WOULD BE HEARD FOR FINAL DISPOSAL ON 21ST MARCH 2016, THE JUDGES (i.e. THE BENCH) SAID.

AS OUR ADVOCATE WOULD  BE OUT OF DELHI DURING THE WEEK OF 21-26 MARCH 2016, SHE SOUGHT CHANGE OF DATES. 

THE NEXT DATE FOR HEARING BOTH THE CASES WOULD BE, HENCE, 28TH MARCH 2016. 


FINAL DISPOSAL DOES NOT MEAN IT WOULD BE HEARD AND DECIDED ON THAT DAY ITSELF. THE GOVT WOULD TRY TO DELAY IT FURTHER - THE SENIOR ADVOCATE COULD ABSTAIN, THIS IS THE NORMAL METHOD ADOPTED BY GOVT. NOTHING CAN BE SAID FOR SURE REGARDING GOVERNMENTS DELAYING TACTICS.
