SC verdict on powers of Delhi government

The Supreme Court is likely to pronounce next week, its verdict on a batch of petitions challenging a Delhi High Court order that the Lt. Governor is the administrator of the national capital.

The petitioners, including the Delhi government, had also challenged a number of circulars issued by the Central government empowering the Lt. Governor to take decisions in certain areas overriding the elected state government including the transfer and postings of officials.

The bench headed by Justice AK Sikri said the judgement is expected anytime next week after senior counsel Indira Jaising mentioned the matter saying that the judgement was reserved on November 1, 2018.
