The bench said that it will decide on the next date of listing if intervention applications filed in the matter should be allowed or not.

The top court had repeatedly refused to pass any interim order staying the survey process or publication of the outcomes of the survey, though it was contended that the matter will become infructuous post publication of the data.

The clutch of special leave petitions filed before the Supreme Court challenges the Patna High Court’s order dismissing pleas challenging the survey. The petitioners before the apex court pleaded that only the Union government had the authority to conduct a census in India and the Bihar government had no authority to decide and notify the conduct of a caste survey in the state.
