Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi continued his tough stance during mentioning turning down many requests today..Interestingly, one of the requests turned down included a prayer by Karti Chidambaram to list a plea seeking permission to travel abroad..When the matter was mentioned, Gogoi J immediately responded,.“Karti Chidambaram going abroad is not a matter to be heard tomorrow. Sorry.“.He also turned down many other requests remarking,.“All judges have more work than they can handle. They have 20 hours of homework.”.The tough stance adopted by CJI Gogoi is of little surprise at this point. On his very first day as the new head of the Supreme Court, CJI Gogoi made it clear that mentioning would be allowed only for urgent matters for the time being before proceeding to hear listed matters..Earlier, Justice Gogoi had announced that he intends to chalk out parameters for the practice of mentioning, until which point indiscriminate mentioning would not be condoned as liberally as his predecessors. Even yesterday, he declined to accommodate early hearings for the SEBI v Sahara case and a case concerning Rohingya immigrants..The opinion at the Bar is divided over the stance of the new CJI. While some lawyers believe that it will help curb Senior Advocates bullying the court into listening to their cases, others are of the opinion that the CJI needs to take the Bar along..Karti Chidambaram’s name features in the list of accused named by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the INX Media money laundering case, owing to which certain restrictions had been placed on his leaving the country. The CBI has alleged that Karti Chidambaram aided INX Media in obtaining Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approvals by exercising illegal influence between 2007 and 2008, during which time his father, P Chidambaram was the Union Finance Minister..On earlier occasions, he has been allowed to travel abroad after the Madras High Court and the Supreme Court granted him conditional permission for the same.
