Notice to Centre on National Court of Appeal

The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Centre and others on a petition seeking establishment of a National Court of Appeal with regional benches to adjudicate cases arising out of high courts in order to help the litigants from far-off places.

A bench of Chief Justice P Sathasivam and Justice Ranjan Gogoi also sought response form the Union government and Law Ministry within four weeks on a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Puducherry-based advocate V Vasantha Kumar. Kumar sought direction to the government to consider his representation sent in November last.
