New Delhi: The Supreme Court today took strong exception to the filing of an affidavit by a junior officer from Rajasthan on a dispute relating to a electricity bill arrears.

"The affidavit has to come from the highest authority. The dignity of the Supreme Court has to be maintained," a Bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia said.

The court said it will not accept the affidavits from junior officers and has to come from CEOs and the top officer.

The court expressed its anguish after it received an affidavit filed by the Deputy Engineer.

The Bench adjourned the matter asking the counsel to get an affidavit from the top officer.

It was hearing a matter relating to dispute between Ajmer Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd and Hindustan Zinc Ltd.
