A three-judge bench of the tribunal comprising of chairperson AM Khanwilkar, Justice Rabi Ranjan and Justice Indermeet Kaur deferred the hearing till July 13 after the Advocate Generals of both the States submitted that the meeting for the amicably settlement of the interim application as suggested by the Tribunal couldn’t be held due to extremely severe cyclonic storm ‘Fani’ that hit the State on May 3 leaving a trail of devastation.
