A five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court has been asked to come up with guidelines for entertaining special leave petitions (SLP). Responding to an SLP in Mathai v George on 19 March, the Supreme Court said it should not have had to hear the case and made the following comment:

“Nowadays all kinds of special leave petitions are being filed in this court against every kind of order.” The bench added that as a result the court has been converted into an ordinary appellate court.
