Hindustan Times gets an interim injunction on release of NRS. What next?

We are a little confused by the number of cases NRS is a party to right now. While you are trying to chase one case, things start happening in another one. We reported yesterday that the Supreme Court had directed the case to Delhi High Court where the case would be heard on January 19th. The next date of hearing in the Supreme Court is January 23rd.

But now the case we are talking about is another one filed by Hindustan Times in Delhi High Court. The case was heard on Wednesday, 13th January 2003 asking for an injunction and declaration. And the court did pass an interim injunction. This effectively means that the court has restrained NRS from publishing, circulating or using in any manner whatsoever the survey figures for the year 2003, Round 1.

One doesn’t really know whether the injunction passed in this case would impact other NRS cases as well.

As per Hindustan Times, after listening to the argument of Abhishek Singhvi, the Delhi High Court said that there were factual inaccuracies in the NRS findings of 2003. NRSC, in all probability, would file a petition against the interim injunction in the divisional court.

Meanwhile, a court judgment in the case filed by India Today group is still awaited.

Getting as complicated as it can, a full and final judgment in the case is still awaited. All eyes are on the Supreme Court now, hoping that the case does it reach a final judgment on January 23rd. And we are sure that most people following the case would be hoping for the same.
