A bench headed by Chief Justice Uday Umesh Lalit said instead of Thursday, it will hear the petition at 12.45 pm when a lawyer mentioned the case for hearing on Thursday.

SC rejected the plea that sought a stay on elevation of Justice Chandrachud as the next CJI holding it “misconceived”. The plea claimed that Justice Chandrachud passed favourable orders in a case involving his son. The plea also argued that Justice Chandrachud orders during Covid had led to wrongful gains by vaccine manufacturers.
