A vacation bench of Justices A S Oka and M M Sundresh was told by senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for the petitioner, that the matter may be heard after vacation.
Singhvi said that urgency in the matter has “kind of slipped away” as between yesterday and today, the bid has been opened. “Between yesterday and today, they have opened the bid and the commercials are such that in any case, I don't think for the actual figures, I can match the person whose bid has been opened. So, your lordships need not be troubled now,” he said.
The Supreme Court Wednesday 29 June said it would hear after vacation a plea filed by Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (Adani) against the Bombay High Court order dismissing its petition challenging the disqualification of its bid in a tender issued by the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority (JNPA) for upgradation of a container terminal in Navi Mumbai.
The apex court will resume normal functioning post the ongoing vacation on July 11.
