The Supreme Court granted four weeks’ time to the Centre to reply to all pleas challenging the abrogation of Article 370 and other issues in Kashmir.
The decision was given by a 5-judge bench that was hearing a bunch of petitions on abrogation of Article 370 and other issues in Kashmir filed by petitioners across the country.
The SC has granted the government 28 days' time to reply to all Kashmir petitions and one week to the petitioners to file their responses after Centre’s reply.
The next hearing of petitions on Kashmir will again be held on November 14.
The SC has allowed the Centre and J&K administration to file counter-affidavits on petitions challenging abrogation of Article 370.
Attorney General KK Venugopal on behalf of the government sought 4 weeks' time while Solicitor General for Jammu and Kashmir also sought the same time to file replies to all the petitions. However, the petitioners opposed the Centre's demand.
