Govt. says SC misread note

The government moved the Supreme Court on Saturday for a correction in the Rafale judgment, saying the court had erred in English grammar to “misinterpret” information submitted to it in a sealed cover note about the pricing of the 36 fighter jet deal.The eight-page “correction” application, filed by the Ministry of Defence, indicated that the three-judge Bench, led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, had misread the English tenses in the government’s sealed cover/confidential note on pricing details. In short, the government claimed that what had been represented as “procedure” to be followed in the future was misconstrued as pertaining to the past.The controversy boils down to two lines in paragraph 25 of the judgment pronounced by the Bench on December 14. The verdict said, “the pricing details have, however, been shared with the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), and the report of the CAG has been examined by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). Only a redacted portion of the report was placed before the Parliament and is in public domain”.
