Taj Mahal hotel auction: Tata Group Company IHCL revokes remark against NMDC from SC

NEW DELHI: In a battle against the Tata Group's Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), the Supreme Court said on Friday that it could not interfere with the dispute between IHCL and the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) civil service regarding the auction offer Taj Mahal Hotel at this stage, which led IHCL to withdraw its petition against NDMC.

The development cleans the tire of auction procedures for the Taj Mahal Hotel in Delhi, popularly called Taj Mansingh.

IHCL had moved the highest court this week after the Delhi High Court rejected its reason for the revised offer at the Taj Mansingh auction. IHCL's lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi said at the outset that the rental conditions for the hotel did not rule out the judgment of the former Supreme Court on the matter and that they are mentioned in the schedule.

In its ruling April last year, the Supreme Court had said that NDMC should take into account Tajian's unmanned record when it determines the party to which the driving license will be given. Singhvi said that extra weight should be given to IHCL and its ability should be assessed because it was a special bidding that the court had proposed.

But Justices L Nageswara Rao and Mohan M Shantanagoudar, who heard the case, said that all bidders have been informed, it is a competitive bidding process and that the schedule mentions them. The Apex court said it did not want to disturb the matter at this stage of the bidding.

"The auction will continue as planned. The final date for submission of technical bids is June 7. After that, tires are cleared for the auction of this property," says an NDMC official. NDMC has set June 1

9 as the date of e- An IHCL spokesman said the company is still convinced of its duties and convinced that "the continued partnership with NDMC will ensure the success of this iconic hotel".

The evolution comes after the dismissal of IHCL's remark by the Delhi High Court. While dismissing IHCL's prosecution on May 22, the High Court ruled that the complicated nature of eligibility conditions that NDMC has insisted upon considering the hotel plot offerings is based on thoughts and deliberations and that the accounting for re-estimation by judicial review was extremely narrow .

"As the supreme court held over and over again, the vision of a certain policy can not be considered, but its legality or processuality is subject to review only," said Justice S Ravindra Bhat and Justice AK Chawla in his judgment.
