The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing on a contempt notice issued to Reliance Communication Ltd. Chairman Anil Dhirubhai Ambani and others on a plea filed by Ericsson India for allegedly not clearing its Rs 550-crore dues.
The matter will now be heard tomorrow due to a paucity of time and assembling of a special bench in the post-lunch session.
Ambani, Reliance Telecom Ltd. Chairman Satish Seth and Reliance Infratel Ltd. Chairperson Chhaya Virani appeared before a bench of Justices RF Nariman and Vineet Saran in pursuance to the contempt notice issued against them.
During the brief hearing, senior advocate Dushyant Dave, appearing for Ericsson India, said there was a gross violation of apex court’s two earlier orders and they(RCOM) have not paid any outstanding dues.
The bench asked the three alleged contemnors to remain present in court on Wednesday.―Bloomberg Quint
