SC refers matter of transfer, posting of Delhi Govt officers to larger bench

Agencies / New Delhi

A two-judge bench of the Supreme Court on Thursday gave a split verdict on the contentious issue of who should control administrative services in Delhi.

The judges who were hearing pleas on six matters pertaining to a conflict between the Centre and the AAP government in Delhi, gave a unanimous order on the remaining five issues.

Both judges agreed that the Lieutenant Governor (L-G) will have control over the Anti-Corruption Bureau, as already notified by the Centre. The power to appoint inquiry commissions would also rest with the central government.

The bench ruled that the elected Delhi government will have the right to appoint public prosecutors, to decide land revenue matters and also to appoint or deal with electricity commission or board.

On the most contentious issue where the verdict was divided, Justice Bhushan ruled the Delhi government has no power at all over administrative services. Justice Sikri, however, made a distinction by saying the transfer or posting of officers in top echelons of bureaucracy (joint director and above) can only be done by the central government. The view of L-G would prevail in case of difference of opinion for matters relating to other bureaucrats.

In view of the differences, the bench said the matter needs to be referred to a larger bench and views expressed by both the judges should be placed before the CJI for the constitution of an appropriate bench.

On September 19, last year, the Centre had told the apex court that administration of Delhi cannot be left to the Delhi government alone and emphasised that it has an extraordinary position by virtue of being the country’s capital.
