SC to start hearing on gas row from Oct 20

The Centre’s petition on the issue and those of various power producers, mainly from Andhra Pradesh, and Fertiliser Corporation of India would also be heard on that day. A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan posted the matter for final hearing after RNRL mentioned that the matter, which was originally scheduled for September one, may not be taken up that day by the bench as the Chief Justice would be leading the Constitutional Bench.

While senior counsel Harish Salve, representing RIL, suggested the date, the counsel for both RNRL as well as the government said that they do not have any objection. “We will start on that day and will finish as soon as possible,” Salve said.

The bench also directed that all the parties to file all the documents including responses and rejoinders by that date. It was ADAG counsel Mukul Rohtagi who approached the court today for mentioning the matter, but RIL counsel Salve suggested that it be taken up on October 20.
