The Supreme Court refused to hear on urgent basis a petition seeking complete ban on stubble burning, taking in view the rising levels of air pollution in the national capital and other North Indian states adjoining Delhi.

The Bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) D.Y. Chandrachud observed that the matter did not strictly fall under the purview of the judiciary.

Asking the petitioner whether the ban would help in reducing air pollution, the Apex Court said that there were some matters in which the courts could look into and others it can’t, since they were not judicially amenable.

Last week, the Apex Court Bench, comprising then Chief Justice U.U. Lalit and Justice Bela M. Trivedi had agreed to hear a petition seeking it’s urgent intervention to control the increasing levels of air pollution in the national capital.

The Bench, while asking the petitioner in person whether the plea under Article 32 of the Constitution was the right means, agreed to list the matter on November 10.
