Supreme Court Dis­misses PIL on Use of Hindi

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

The Supreme Court has dis­missed a pe­ti­tion seek­ing di­rec­tion to amend the Con­sti­tu­tion to make Hindi as of­fi­cial lan­guage of work in the apex court and high courts, dub­bing it as a “friv­o­lous PIL” and stopped short of im­pos­ing a cost of ₹ 1 lakh on the lawyer who had filed it. A bench com­pris­ing CJI TS Thakur and Jus­tice UU Lalit said the pe­ti­tion filed by ad­vo­cate Shiv Sa­gar Tiwari was “abuse of the process of law” and wastage of ju­di­cial time which war­rants im­po­si­tion of cost of ₹ lakh on him.
