Renu Rani Shrivastava & Anr. Vs. New India Assurance Company Ltd. & Ors. (Supreme Court Of India)
It is brought to our notice that the impugned judgment is written by the learned Single Judge of the High Court in Hindi. Learned counsel for the petitioner has filed English translation of the impugned judgment and has also sought permission to exempt the petitioner from filing official translation of the impugned judgment. We are constrained to reject this application with cost of Rs. 5,000/- to be paid by the petitioner and to be deposited with the Supreme Court Legal Services Committee within two weeks from today.
The reason for imposing costs on the petitioner is that on perusal of the translation filed by the petitioner, we find that the impugned judgment does not make out any head and tail. It is difficult to read much less to understand as to what the judgment contains.
In the interest of justice, we grant four weeks’ time to learned counsel for the petitioner to file one official translated version of the impugned judgment to be obtained from the official translator of the High Court of Rajasthan duly certified by him.
List the matter after four weeks.
