NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court rejected the pleas challenging the Centres' decision to abrogate Article 370, which gave Jammu and Kashmir a special status on Friday, and the Court announced on Friday that they would list them after the Dussehra holiday.The pleas were supposed to be listed after the summer vacation, according to a bench that included Chief Justice Uday Umesh Lalit and justices Indira Banerjee and S Ravindra Bhat.The CJI said we will certainly include that.After the summer vacation, a bench led by the then CJI N V Ramana, who has since retired, decided to consider listing the pleas challenging the Centres' decision to repeal Article 370 provisions.

After the Dussehra break, the apex court will have to re-constitute a five-judge bench for hearing the pleas, as ex-CJI Ramana and Justice R Subhash Reddy, who were on the five-judge bench that heard the pleas, have retired.Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, B R Gavai, and Surya Kant were among the four former judges on the bench, which had declined to refer to a larger seven-judge bench on March 2, 2020, for a series of petitions challenging the Centres' decision to abrogate provisions of Article 370 on August 5, 2019.Many petitions challenged the Centre's decision to abrogate provisions of Article 370 and the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, which split J-K into two Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh, were considered to a Constitution Bench headed by Justice Ramana in 2019.The Central government had abolished Jammu and Kashmir's unique status by abrogating Article 370.

The bench, dissatisfied with the petitioners, said that there is no contradiction between the two decisions.
