When the country’s highest court issues an order, the collector cannot wait to carry it out: Supreme Court

The practice of authorities delaying the execution of the directives by requesting approval from their senior officials has been condemned by the Supreme Court. The Court recently ruled that there is no justification for asking for permission to carry out a command that the nation’s top court has issued.
In a ruling issued on February 6, a bench made up of Justices BR Gavai and Vikram Nath made this statement while judging the behavior of a District Collector to be discourteous.
The Court did emphasize that the officer does not have to show up if “better counsel prevails upon” him and the order is carried out in the meantime.
