Injunction on NRS release continues

On December 22, 2003, the Delhi High Court had directed NRSC not to release NRS 2003 till further notification. Feedback Communications had filed a writ petition against the directive in the Supreme Court. The petition came up for hearing on January 12, 2004.

However, the Supreme Court then sent the case back to the divisional branch of Delhi High Court hoping and expecting a speedy judgement or directive on the case.

This round of hearing, which has Mapsor Advertising as a party, started in the divisional branch of Delhi High Court day before, i.e. on January 19, 2004. As the argument was not completed on 19th, it was continued till yesterday afternoon.

Kapil Sibbal, along with Mahesh Dousawala, argued on behalf of Mapsor Advertising. As per sources present in the court, Sibbal argued that NRSC committed a fraud in collision with some ad company by not informing Delhi High Court (in the case that came up for hearing on December 19, 2003) about its undertaking in Jaipur High Court and released data in a stealthy manner.

The Court, sources claim, expressed unhappiness regarding the way NRSC had gone about the representation in Delhi High Court. As per them, the court asked Sibbal if he was happy with the stay order passed by Delhi High Court on December 22, 2003. Sibbal, in turn, apparently stated that the directive was fine but he wanted something more than that. Next date for the hearing in this particular court is February 3.

Meanwhile, the same case would come up for hearing on January 23 in the Supreme Court. However, not much action is anticipated there as the case, which the Supreme Court had transferred to High Court, is still under progression.

On another side, as per the sources, there was a meeting of NRSC in Mumbai last evening. However, what transpired at the meeting or what was the topic of discussion is not yet known.
