Bench: Chief Justice HL Dattu, Amitava Roy J.

A fresh petition.

Today in Court: This petition challenged a judgment passed by the National Green Tribunal in a Review Petition. The stance of the Petitioner was that the order in the Review Petition was passed by the Tribunal (after being reserved) without any notification on the NGT website or any kind of intimation to the Petitioners, which caused them great prejudice.

The Bench today passed an order that the said decision of the NGT shall not serve as ‘a precedent in any case’ as it was not in ‘consonance with the settled principles’.

It was further held by the Bench that the question of law raised in this particular civil appeal was to be kept open so as to be agitated in a separate case.
