SUPREME COURT PERMITS DELHI GOVERNMENT AMEND ITS PETITION CHALLENGING DELHI SERVICES LAW

NEW DELHI, Aug. 25, 2023 (TBINN) Supreme Court today permitted Delhi Government to amend its petition challenging the recently cleared law by Parliament pertaining to control over services in National Capital.

The top court took note of submissions of senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi, appearing for the Delhi Government, that earlier the challenge was directed against the Ordinance which has now become law after clearance from Parliament.

A bench headed by Chief Justice D.Y. Chandrachud permitted the amendment to the petition as Centre said it has no objection to it. Bench granted four weeks time to the Centre to file its response to the amended plea.

It is to be reminded here that Parliament recently cleared the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill 2023, also known as the Delhi Services Bill, paving way for the Centre‚Äôs proposed legislation on the postings and transfers of bureaucrats in the National Capital, despite a bitter debate in the House and Opposition’s attempt to stop it.

Prior to this, challenge to the Ordinance over services was referred to a five-judge Constitution Bench.
