SC imposes ₹5 lakh on Haryana govt for filing appeal after 5 years


The Supreme Court today imposed a cost of 5 lakh rupees on the Haryana government for filing an appeal against a high court order after more than five years. The court said, the state government is destroying the judicial system by blatant misuse of the process. A bench headed by Chief Justice, J S Khehar said, the Haryana government is challenging the order of high court after five years and eight months in a case which is time barred.

The bench was also annoyed that the state government after approaching six different forums has come to Supreme Court. The court pulled up the counsel appearing for the state government for not advising to appeal in Supreme Court. The apex court was hearing a case related to labour issues in an appeal filed by Haryana State Cooperative Labour and Construction Federation Ltd.
