In relief for Puducherry Lieutenant Governor (LG) Kiran Bedi, a Bench of the Supreme Court on Monday restrained the Congress government in the Union Territory from implementing any decision involving financial implications or transfer of officials.

The Bench further issued notice to the elected government and allowed the Cabinet to meet on June 7, but said decisions that entailed serious financial implications and those on transfers could not be implemented till the next hearing scheduled for June 21.

Supreme Court order is a stay on the Madras High Court’s decision
The High Court curbed the LG’s powers to interfere in the day-to-day administration, especially when an elected government was in place.
