Claiming overreach,govt seeks review

The government today moved the Supreme Court against its February 2 2G verdict.

The government today moved the Supreme Court against its February 2 2G verdict,saying that in striking down the policy of first-come-first-served in the allocation of spectrum,the court had gone beyond the limits of judicial review.

The vedict cancelling the 2G licences “is liable to be reviewed since there are errors which are apparent on the face of the record”,said the government.

It pointed out flaws in the policy of auction that has been recommended by the court.

Quoting several SC judgments,the petition said “the court (had) travelled beyond the established limits of judicial review and entered the exclusive domain of the executive”. In holding the policy to be not in public interest,the court had gone “entirely contrary to the jurisprudence of judicial review,which does not permit a court to hold a policy decision to be flawed only because (it) has a different view… of what lies in public interest”,the government said.
