New Delhi:
Submitting its stand on the Shunglu Committee report before the Delhi High Court on Wednesday, the Central government said it is mulling over implementation of the report.

The Centre was responding to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) submitted in the court by Anti-Corruption Forum which sought the court directive to the government against release of any tender by the government departments.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Deepak Mishra and Justice Sanjeev Khanna heard the government stand.

According to the PIL, the government had appointed a high-power committee on October 25, 2010 under the chairmanship of VK Shunglu to probe into anomalies of the Commonwealth Games. The committee in its report on March 25 this year recommended that the government should take utmost precaution and maintain transparency whenever any tender is released.

The petitioner further requested that until the court gives any verdict on this plea, the Centre and other parties should be directed against releasing any tender or the process should be avoided till the government formulates another policy.
