Vijayawada: The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Tuesday heard a petition on the transfer of some powers of gram panchayat sarpanches and secretaries to the village revenue officers, and posted the case for January 20.
A single-judge bench headed by Justice Battu Devanand heard the petition challenging GO No. 2 issued on March 25, pertaining to transfer of powers of gram panchayat sarpanches and secretaries to the VROs.
Government pleader Sivaji submitted to the court that the government required more time to take a decision on GO No. 2. The court accepted the request. Earlier, the court had issued an interim order suspending GO No. 2.
