On January 19, 2023, the Supreme Court noted that the government is currently debating whether to designate Ram Setu as a “national monument.”
It permitted Subramanian Swamy, the petitioner and a former member of the Rajya Sabha, to provide more information to the Ministry of Culture if he so chose.
The government was requested by a bench chaired by Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachud to inform the court once the process was complete.
