The basic procedure after filing SLP in SC ...


experts, pl. add your valuable views ...


(1) When a Special Leave Petition (SLP) is filed in the Supreme Court, you immediately get a Diary Number for having filed the case. It is a temporary number given to your filing. Subsequently, you’ll get a regular SLP No.

(2) Usually within a day or two of the filing (sometimes, it may take slightly longer), the SC registry will point out the defects, if any, in the filing. Please note that defects are generally pointed out in almost all cases, the number of defects may vary though.

(3) Thereafter, you are required to remove the defects of filing. After removal of defects, the case has to be refiled in the registry. The time taken to remove the defects will vary, depending on how many defects are there, and also whether the defects are of formal nature or of some serious nature. The registry gives 28 days’ time to remove the defects. However, if your advocate on record is good and if the defects are not too many, generally the defects will be removed and the case will be refiled in 2-3 days.

(4) After refiling of the case, the registry will generally take 3-4 days to give a regular SLP No. to the case.

(5) Generally, the SLP is listed for hearing before the regular bench of the Supreme Court within about two weeks of the regular SLP No. being given to it.
