Court vacates stay on ABC notification 733 & 734

The verdict on Anand Bazaar Patrika’s writ filed against Audit Bureau of Circulation’s notification 733 and 734 has been passed. The Kolkatta High Court has decided to vacate the stay on the notifications, making them operational.

To put things into perspective, ABC had issued notification 733 which, amongst other things, dealt with trade guidelines. Industry sources inform that it was largely in context to these guidelines that led ABP to file a writ petition against ABC. In the duration of the writ being filed at the court, ABC issued notification 734, which affected changes in the some of the clauses of notification 733. Consequently, a stay was levied on these notifications.

The court has finally given its verdict and it comes in favour of ABC, where it has vacated the stay on these notifications on technical ground. ABP sources inform that the reason for such a result was that to revoke an ABC clause was legally not tenable.

ABC’s primary objective to its publishers is to arrive at and certify circulation figures representing Net Paid Sales of member publications and disseminate the data for the use of space buyers.
