Sources in the Supreme Court registry have told News18 that the case is likely to be heard on a day-to-day basis, as far as possible. It would be worthwhile to mention here that 'day-to-day' hearing does not mean hearing a case all days in a week.
The Supreme Court takes up miscellaneous fresh cases and other short matters on the two fixed days every week — Monday and Friday. Regular hearing cases are then heard on the other three working days. Registry sources say that the indications are that Ramjanmabhoomi-Babri case will be listed for hearing frequently from the coming week.
"Picture will become clearer once the Constitution Bench sits on Thursday and a definite course is chalked out. We are also waiting for further instructions from the CJI so that the business of the court from the next week is planned accordingly," add sources.
The officials further point out that the five-judge bench comprises all the judges who are heading the benches separately and hence, once the hearing in this case begins, it is expected to be taken to the logical end as soon as possible. The bench includes CJI Gogoi and Justices SA Bobde, NV Ramana, Uday U Lalit and DY Chandrachud.
