Chief Justice of India, Justice JS Khehar has constituted a special three judge bench for hearing cross appeals in the Ayodhya land dispute case.

Justices Dipak Misra, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer will hear the appeals on August 11 at 2pm.

On July 21,  BJP leader Subramanian Swamy  mentioned the matter before Chief Justice J S Khehar seeking early adjudication of the decades-old dispute.


“We are going to list the main matter soon. We will take a decision on it,” said the bench.

On March 21, the Supreme Court had asked the parties 'why there cannot be an out-of-court settlement to the vexed Ayodhya Ram temple issue saying these were matters of religion and faith?'

“These are matters of religion. Is it possible to give a call? Why dont you make an attempt to sort it out sitting across the table”, the CJI asked

A three-judge Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad HC had in September 2010 given the Judgment to divide  the 2.7-acre disputed land at the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site equally between Ram Lalla, Nirmohi Akhara and Sunni Wakf Board. On an appeal by Muslim bodies, SC had stayed implementation of the HC decision soon after.
