Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case hearing, scheduled for January 29 in the Supreme Court, has been delayed again due to non availability of a judge. 

According to a notification by the apex court, the constitution bench matter will not be taken up for hearing on January 29. 

"Take notice that due to non-availability of Justice SA Bobde on Tuesday, sitting of constitution bench stands cancelled. Therefore, constitution bench matter will not be taken up for hearing," it read. 

Earlier on January 25, a new 5-judge Constitution Bench was constituted by the Supreme Court to hear on January 29 the politically sensitive dispute in Ayodhya.

The bench was re-constituted as Justice U U Lalit, who was a member of the original bench, recused himself on January 10 after expressing disinclination to participate in the hearing any further as he had appeared as a lawyer for former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh in a connected matter "sometime in the year 1997".

The new bench comprises of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer.

Justice N V Ramana, who was in the bench which last heard the matter on January 10, is also not a member in the new bench. 

Justices Bhushan and Nazeer are the new members in the bench.
