Our flagship daily news show, where hosts Neha Mathews and Shashank Bhargava talk to in-house experts about what is going on and why you need to care about it
On 13th and 14th November, Supreme Court benches led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, who is set to retire on the 17th of November, heard a clutch of important cases. On this episode of 3 Things, we dissect the judgements on these five cases- the Rafale case review, the contempt case against Rahul Gandhi related to the Rafale issue, a review of the Sabrimala case, a case seeking to make the highest court and it’s administration a public authority, and a review of the Finance Act 2017 which would make tribunals less independent. Anantkrishnan G and Apurva Vishwanath, who report on matters of law for the Indian Express, join us to explain whether it’s the end of the road for the Rafale case, why the Sabarimala case got combined with other writ petitions and referred to a larger bench, what it means for the Supreme Court to finally become a public authority and open to RTIs, and how the Finance Act 2017 would have compromised the independence of tribunals like the National Green Tribunal.
