The petition filed by GTA member Binay Tamang in September last year claimed that the state government's decision was "impinging upon the fundamental rights of the Gorkha people living in the hill areas of the district of Darjeeling."
The bench headed by the then Chief Justice T. S. Thakur had asked for the 2011 notification issued by the West Bengal Government promising transfer of power in terms of a memorandum of agreement (MoU) to be presented before the court.
However, the officials had then said that the petition alleging the state government's refusal to transfer administrative power was misleading.
