The Supreme Court has allowed the appeal of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) against a Gujarat High Court judgement, where a two judge bench of the court held against the company after a difference of opinion arising among the judges in a public interest case of environment pollution in Ahmedabad. The apex court has said that the matter will be placed before a third judge to resolve the conflict. RIL said that it had set up an effluent treatment plant in 1985 at the cost of Rs 1.5 crore and was not discharging any effluents into the Kharicut canal.
