1st time ever: Supreme Court's 'paperless' hearing in Delhi govt vs Centre power tussle case

Top court's constitution bench comprising judge will list the matter on September 27 for fixing the timeline for hearing.

In a first, the Supreme Court will go paperless when it adjudicates the contentious issue of the scope of powers of the Centre and the Delhi government over control of services.

Top court's constitution bench comprising five judges will list the matter on September 27 for fixing the timeline for hearing.

The 'green bench' will use no papers when the hearing for 'service row' actually begins, said Justice DY Chandrachud.

The tentative hearing concerning the scope of legislative and executive powers of the Centre and the Delhi government will begin by mid-October.

On February 14, 2019, a two-judge bench had recommended that a three-judge bench be set up to decide over the issue of control of services in the national capital in view of its split verdict

The latest observation came after lawyers said a constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India U U Lalit will start hearing from September 13 pleas on the validity of the Centre's decision to grant 10 per cent reservation to economically weaker sections (EWS) in admissions and jobs through the 103rd Constitutional Amendment Act, 2019.

The bench was informed that many senior lawyers appearing in the Delhi-Centre row case will be arguing in the EWS matter as well and they should therefore be accommodated.

The court said it will list the matter on September 27 for directions on how it will proceed further, looking at the stage of hearing in the EWS matter.
