The Rs 7,250 crore battle between the Tatas and DoComo continues to elude settlement. Tata Teleservices’ financial struggles had prompted the Japanese company to seek an exit. Under the agreement, the Tatas had offered to return half of Docomo’s original amount at the end of five years if the partners wanted to part ways but later did not do so citing Reserve Bank of India (RBI) regulations. Docomo filed for international arbitration and won an award of $1.17 billion.
The 40th anniversary of the landmark judgement that was crucial in upholding the supremacy of the Constitution is creating renewed interest about preventing authoritarian rule by a single party. The Kesavananda Bharathi judgement outlined the Basic Structure doctrine of the Constitution. Justice Hans Raj Khanna asserted through this doctrine that the constitution possesses a basic structure of constitutional principles and values. The Court cemented the prior precedent Golaknath v. State of Punjab AIR 1967 SC 1643, which held that constitutional amendments pursuant to Article 368 were subject to fundamental rights review. The Basic Structure doctrine forms the basis of power of the Indian judiciary to review, and strike down, amendments to the Constitution of India enacted by the Indian parliament which conflict with or seek to alter this basic structure of the Constitution.
