NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a plea for review of its direction for deposit of 10% of sale proceeds from every lease holder for the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for extracting iron ore from Ballari, Chitradurga and Tumkuru districts of Karnataka. A bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi, R K Agrawal and A M Khanwilkar rejected a review petition filed by Federation of Indian Mineral Industries, Southern Region, against the apex courts judgement of March 21. "We have perused the review petition as well as the grounds in support thereof. In our opinion, no case for review of judgment dated March 21, 2017 is made out.
