SC Moved To Expunge The Personal Remarks Made By The Bench Of NCLAT
  • The Supreme Court on Friday expunged remarks made against three sitting members of the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) by a five-judge Bench headed by acting chairperson Justice Bansi Lal Bhat.
  • "We have gone through the case. We are with you. Observations made against members of the tribunal stands expunged from the record," Justice Nariman said even before the hearing could proceed.
  • Aggrieved by the remarks made by the five-member bench, three NCLAT members – Justice (retd) JK Jain, Bavinder Singh and Vijay Pratap Singh, had approached the top court.
  • The petition by these three members in Supreme Court filed through advocate Amit Sharma, said, “The larger bench has crossed the limits of its jurisdiction and has made unsavoury and most disparaging comments which tend to be personal in nature against the Referral Bench.”
  • They approached the court under Section 62 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code which allows any NCLAT order to be appealed before the top court.
