Policy issues not for courts: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Monday said it was not for the courts to involve themselves in issues of policy which come under the domain of the government and Parliament.

“As as far as public safety is concerned, Article 21 of the Constitution is there. For all other issues, they may not be for the court of law to decide. They may be the issues of policy,” said an apex court bench headed by Chief Justice SH Kapadia.

The court said this while hearing a petition by NGO Common Cause, seeking directions for setting up of an independent nuclear regulatory authority and questioning import of nuclear power plants with doubtful technological safety.

While adjourning the matter for four weeks, the court said: “Supreme Court will remain Supreme Court. Supreme Court is not a Parliament.”

    Supreme Court should remain as Supreme Court to render justice to people of India. There should be no doubt about it.
