Supreme Court to hear case betwee central government and the Kerala government on March 6

The Supreme Court has apprised that dialogue between central government and the Kerala government over financial allocation which took place on February 19 yielded no result.

The Kerala government has decided to pursue its case against the central government at the Supreme Court.

The Apex Court has agreed to hear the case at length on March 6 and 7.

On February 13, the SC was informed by the centre that it is willing to engage in a dialogue with the representatives from Kerala government on funds allocation.

After the Supreme Court urged both the Kerala government and the Central government governments to talk and resolve the issues concerning finance and budgeting, they have come together.

While hearing a plea filed by the Kerala government that claimed the Central government was unduly interfering with the State’s power to borrow and regulate its finances, the bench comprising Justice Surya Kant and Justice KV Viswanathan made the above suggestion.

The Court on Tuesday observed that negotiations and talks between with the Central and Kerala government officials could aid in settling these disputes.

“We are not asking for tinkering with fiscal policy and we know that you (Central government) cannot take decision only for one State.

But we also think that you being the Union, the cordiality is one thing that will work for the country,” the Court said when the matter was taken up this morning.
