The Union government has moved the apex court seeking transfer of all petitions challenging the constitutionality of the new Information Technology (IT) Rules, 2021, from various high courts to the top court.

In a transfer petition filed by the Union government, the Centre has asked the Supreme Court to direct several High Courts including Delhi, Bombay, Madras and Kerala, not to make any observation on the new IT rules and instead seize the issue.

The petition has also sought an immediate hearing over the matter by the Supreme Court. According to the case status shown on the apex court website, the Centre’s plea, which was filed earlier, is likely to be listed for hearing on July 9.

Several pleas challenging the validity of the new IT rules are pending adjudication in the Delhi High Court which has also sought a response from the Centre on these petitions.
