As far as the High Court is concerned, for the Principal Bench at Guwahati, we have already vacated this order though effectively from 23.08.2021, the Court observed. 

The Court further clarified that the interim order dated May 10 shall be vacated on August 31, subject to any further orders of the Court in the instant PIL. Leave was also granted to all concerned litigants to move until August 31 appropriate applications for extension of the stay orders or for any other purpose before the Court.
