The Supreme court on Wednesday directed the Income Tax department to provide a transcript of tapped conversations of corporate lobbyist Neera Radia with corporate honchos, politicians and bureaucrats to CBI and ED which are probing 2G scam case.  A bench of Justices GS Singhvi and AK Ganguly passed the order after CBI complained that the IT has not provided the transcript of 5000-hour tapped conversations.

As the bench was dictating the order for CBI, ED also submitted it should also be given the transcript.The bench, after passsing the order, said in a lighter vein that “it seems tapes are much in demand”.

Transcripts of some of these tapes have already been published by various magazines, which has stirred a controversy, and Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata had approached the apex court to bar the media from airing his telephonic conversations with the corporate lobbyist.
