"We request the mediation panel to inform the court about the outcome of the mediation proceedings as on July 31," said the bench, also comprising Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer.

The bench, which had perused a report about the progress of the mediation process till July 18, had said its contents will remain confidential according to an earlier order.

The Supreme Court on July 11 had sought a report on the mediation process and said that a day-to-day hearing might commence from July 25 if the court decides to conclude the mediation proceedings. It had requested Justice Kalifulla to inform it by July 18 about the progress made thus far.

It had passed the order while hearing an application filed by a legal heir of one of the original litigants, Gopal Singh Visharad, seeking a judicial decision on the dispute and conclusion of the mediation process, alleging that not much was happening there.

The panel, also comprising spiritual guru and founder of the Art of Living foundation Sri Sri Ravishankar and senior advocate and renowned mediator Sriram Panchu, was earlier granted time till August 15 by the apex court for completion of mediation after its earlier report had said that the mediators were "optimistic" about an amicable solution.

The court had fixed the seat for the mediation process in Uttar Pradesh's Faizabad, around 7 km from Ayodhya, and said that adequate arrangements, including those related to the venue of the mediation, place of stay of the mediators, their security and travel, should be arranged by the state government for the proceedings to start immediately.

The bench was earlier told by a number of Hindu bodies, except the Nirmohi Akhara, and the Uttar Pradesh government that they were not in favour of the court's suggestion for mediation. The Muslim bodies had supported the proposal.

Fourteen appeals have been filed in the Supreme Court so far against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be equally divided among the three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
