The final order regarding this, however, should follow with a few language variations, following suggestions by Attorney General K.K. Venugopal and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, said a Bench of Chief Justice NV Ramana and Justices Surya Kant and AS Bopanna.

The Court directed the SG to send the suggestions in writing. The Attorney General was requested to send his note to the SG.
