New Delhi: The Supreme Court will deliver its judgment on Thursday in the ongoing dispute between the Center and the Delhi government over control of administrative services in the capital city of Delhi. A five-member jury chaired by Chief Justice Divya Chandrachud can hear the decision. According to the schedule available on the apex court’s website, the Chief Justice is likely to pronounce judgment on only one case tomorrow.
The five-member bench comprises Justice MR Shah, Justice Krishna Murari, Justice Hima Koholi and Justice PS Narsimah. The jury reserved its verdict on January 18 after five consecutive days of hearing documents from Solicitor General Tushar Mehta and senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi from the Center and Delhi governments respectively.
The said constitutional bench was constituted to hear the issues relating to the transitional and powers of the Central and State Governments over the administrative services in Delhi. On May 6 last year, the Supreme Court referred the case to a five-member constitutional bench.
