The Supreme Court on Friday removed the banner of government advertisement, containing a photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and slogan of “sabka sath sabka vikas,” from its official emails.
SC has confirmed that this banner was added at NIC server by the Government of India.
As per a Supreme Court statement issued here, “Late last evening, it was brought to the notice of the Registry of the Supreme Court of India that the official emails of the Supreme Court of India were carrying an image as footer, which had no connection whatsoever with the functioning of the Judiciary. The National Informatics Centre, which provides email services to the Apex Court, was directed to drop that image from the footer of the emails originating from the Supreme Court. It was further directed to use the picture of the Supreme Court of India, instead. NIC has since complied with the directions of SCI.”
