SC asks HC to decide on Gammon’s plea

Supreme Court on Monday asked Delhi High Court to “expeditiously” decide a plea filed by Gammon India Limited that it has “arbitrarily” been denied contract of a Rs 600 crore metro rail project despite its financial bid being lower than the company which bagged it.

“The parties (Gammon India, DMRC, Centre and others) agree that the pleadings shall be completed before February 25. We request the High Court to commence the hearing on that day,” a bench headed by Justice T S Thakur said.

It also ordered maintenance of ‘staus quo’ with regard to construction and other works in pursuance of award of the contract. The bench, which also comprised Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, said the parties would not seek any adjournment of hearing before the High Court which would expeditiously decide the plea of Gammon India Ltd.
