Delhi High Court To Hear All Petitions Challenging Agnipath

After the Supreme Court on Tuesday transferred various pleas related to Agnipath Scheme to Delhi High Court, the Delhi HC on Wednesday fixed the date to August 25, 2022 to hear all the petitions challenging Agnipath Scheme.

The Bench of Justice Satish Chander Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad on Wednesday says following SC direction issued for Delhi HC, we will examine all the related matter on August 25, 2022. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on Wednesday appeared for Centre, apprised the Delhi High Court about the SC direction issues yesterday and read out the related order.

The Supreme Court also clarified that as regards to other similar petitions challenging Agnipath Scheme pending in other various High Courts, the concerned HCs should either give an option to the petitioners to either have their petitions transferred to the Delhi HC or to keep their petitions pending with liberty to petitioners to intervene in Delhi HC.

The top court also requested Delhi HC to take up the matter and dispose of it expeditiously. The court on Tuesday noted a consolidated chart of HC cases presented by SG Tushar Mehta. High Courts of Delhi, Kerala, Punjab and Haryana, Patna and Uttarakhand are hearing matters connected to the scheme.
