Centre tells Supreme Court its verdict has diluted SC/ST Act
New Delhi 13 April
The Centre, on Thursday, told the Supreme Court that its recent judgement on the SC/ST Act has diluted the provisions of the law, resulting in great damage to the country.

The government said that the top court verdict, which had dealt with an issue of a "very sensitive nature", has caused "commotion", "anger, unease and a sense of disharmony" in the country.

In his written submission, Attorney General K K Venugopal said that through its judgement, the top court has not filled the gaps in the SC/ST Act but rather amended it through judicial legislation.

The centre stressed that separation of powers between the legislature, the executive and the judiciary was "inviolable".

The Centre also said that the "confusion" created by the apex court verdict may have to be corrected by reviewing the judgement and recalling the directions issued by the top court.
