SC quashes petition against BMIC project

The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed a petition by RTI activist T J Abraham, challenging the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed a petition by RTI activist T J Abraham, challenging the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project on Wednesday.

Abraham alleged that all the activities of the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE), the promoters of the BMIC project, carried out from 1995 to the present date were illegal. He had moved the apex court seeking directions to conduct a criminal investigation into the project.

Earlier, the High Court of Karnataka had dismissed his petition with regard to his complaint before the Lokayukta, alleging various irregularities in the project.

The Supreme Court dismissed the special leave petition (SLP) filed by Abraham on the ground that all the issues and aspects of the petition have been covered in the earlier judgments. The court also warned the petitioner that it would impose costs for filing frivolous petitions.

With the order, the apex court rejected all the allegations of fraud and illegalities against NICE.

Following the judgment, the management of NICE issued a statement that they will implement the BMIC project according to the terms of reference of the Frame Work Agreement (FWA) as upheld by the High Court of Karnataka and the Supreme Court, in accordance with the law.
