New Delhi: The Supreme Court, Wednesday, restrained all high courts from entertaining pleas challenging validity of the Constitutional Amendment Act and the NJAC Act on appointment of judges.

The order came after the Centre told the apex court that the petitions against Constitutional Amendment Act and NJAC Act are premature and are yet to be notified.

The court said, “We will decide later as to whether these pleas are maintainable or not and whether they should be referred to a larger bench.”

The SC will hear the petition on March 17.
