SC opinion on 2G vindicated govt stand: Chidambaram

Sep 28, 2012 02:47 PM IST Politics Politics

In a major relief for the government, the Supreme Court on Thursday clarified that the auction order in the 2G scam was only restricted to telecom spectrum and not for all natural resources. The Supreme Court held the 2G Presidential Reference as maintainable.

A five-judge Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice SH Kapadia also clarified that its opinion will have no bearing on the 2G order.

Apart from Chief Justice Kapadia, the Constitution Bench also consisted of justices DK Jain, JS Khehar, Dipak Misra and Ranjan Gogoi. While upholding the Presidential Reference the court said that public good was above revenue maximisation.
