The hearing on the public interest litigation in the High Court of Karnataka (WP 37577/2012)regarding the non appointment of the Chair Person for Cyber Appellate Tribunal which was scheduled for today the 7th February 2013 has not been listed in the proceedings for the day.
It is understood that it is now rescheduled for next Monday.
As per the last order of 3rd December 2012, Government of India was today expected to file its objections to the petition of Advocate Chaitanya. However the hearing has not been listed and hence there is some additional time available with the Government of India for filing its objections.
The exact reason for the postponement is unknown. It is speculated that the Government of India might have requested for the reschedulement hopefully intending to notify the appointment before the date of hearing to avoid the Court passing any further observations.
