The Supreme Court on Friday took a serious note of government’s failure to meet the two-month deadline on submitting its interim report on the possibility of either imposing a complete ban on pesticide endosulfan or eliminating the existing stock in phases.
The Supreme Court, which on May 13 had imposed a complete ban on production, sale and use of endosulfan for eight weeks, granted another three weeks to the Centre to come out with the report while refusing its plea for a six-week time.
“The Additional Solicitor-General seeks six weeks’ time to file the interim report. We are not inclined to give six weeks and the preliminary report based on the study by an expert committee has to be filed within three weeks,” a bench comprising Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia and Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar said.
The bench reminded Additional Solicitor-General Mohan Parasaran that already two months had passed since it gave an interim order on May 13 asking for preliminary report based on a detailed study from all aspects by an expert committee.
