The on Monday said it has become a routine affair that officials are approaching it against the Allahabad High Court orders and they do not respect orders of the court.

The observation was made by a bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana when a counsel sought an urgent hearing of a plea of a senior IAS officer and Chief Executive Officer of New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (NOIDA) against the issuance of a non-bailable warrant (NBW) by the Allahabad High Court in a contempt case related to a land acquisition matter.

The high court order had come as the officer could not appear before it in time.

The non-bailable warrants have been issued against a woman IAS officer for late appearance, a lawyer said.

Let her appear. Let her understand, the bench said, adding You are an IAS officer, you know the rules... Every day we see that there is a breach of orders from the Allahabad High Court. This is a routine, every day one or the officer has to come and seek permission. What is this? You do not respect orders of the court.
