The Supreme Court on Friday, sought response from the Delhi government, on an appeal made by the Centre against a Delhi High Court order, within 3 weeks.

The bench led by justice AK Sikri clarified that there is no stay on observations made by the Delhi High Court single judge in the May 25 judgment.

“We are not inclined to go into the issue of stay at this stage and after getting the reply, we will look into it,” the bench said as reported by the Economic Times (ET).

The Centre in its May 21 notification had restrained the Delhi government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) from acting against its officers in criminal offences.

The notification stated that the Lieutenant Governor (LG) will have jurisdiction over matters concerned with services, public order, police and land, and he may consult with the Chief Minister whenever he thinks is necessary.

The bench also said that the High Court would hear a fresh petition filed by the Delhi government challenging the May 21 notification of the Centre, without being influenced by the observations made by the single judge in his verdict.

As per ET’s report, Centre, in its petition before the Supreme Court, has said that the observations made by the High Court led to uncertainty and made everyday administration in the national capital difficult.

It demanded for clear interpretation of Article 239 AA of the Constitution in balance of equation between the Delhi government and the LG.

The Centre also sought stay of the High Court judgment stating that it was issued without hearing it and listed nine grounds for setting it aside including that it “upsets the delicate constitutional balance for governance of Delhi and that too without an opportunity of hearing being given to the Union of India.”
