Supreme Court dismissed the PIL asking for Restoration of Army Chief’s Date of Birth - CURRENT AFFAIRS 2

The Supreme Court of India on 20 January 2012 dismissed a PIL seeking a direction to the government to restore the Army Chief Gen V K Singh's date of birth as 10 May 1951 and not as 1950. A bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia ruled that the writ petition filed at the behest of an association is not maintainable. 

The court observed that this is purely a service matter. The court further said it is not expressing any opinion on the merits of the case. 

The bench did not like that the PIL filed by the Grenadiers Association annexed the opinions of former chief justices of India in the petition on the age row of Army Chief when they themselves said it is not for being putting up before the court. The bench directed the apex court registry not to accept any writ petitions in cases where opinions of former chief justices are annexed.
