The Hindu - - TAMIL NADU - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

The Madras High Court on Thurs­day re­strained the Tamil Film Pro­duc­ers Coun­cil from tak­ing a fi­nal de­ci­sion on a pro­posal to amend its bye-laws and bring in a rule that only those who had pro­duced and re­leased at least three movies would be per­mit­ted to get en­rolled in the as­so­ci­a­tion and ex­er­cise the right to vote in the elec­tions to the coun­cil.

Jus­tice C.V. Karthikeyan or­dered that the coun­cil’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing (AGM) sched­uled to be held on Sun­day could dis­cuss the is­sue of amend­ing the byelaws but the re­sult of such dis­cus­sion should not be de­clared with­out the per­mis­sion of the court.

Ob­server named

Mr. Jus­tice Karthikeyan also ap­pointed former High Court judge R.S. Ra­manathan as an ob­server for the AGM.

The or­ders were passed on a civil suit filed by three film pro­duc­ers, in­clud­ing R. Kishore Kumar, to re­strain the coun­cil from amend­ing its bye-laws.
