You are too late, SC tells petitioner seeking direction to turn INS Viraat into Museum


New Delhi, Apr 12 (ILNS) The Supreme Court today told the Envitech Marine Consultants Pvt Ltd that it had come ‘too late,’ while dismissing their petition, seeking direction to appoint a committee for the assessment of warship INS Viraat and turning the same into a Museum.

The bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justice AS Bopanna and Justice V Ramasubramanian said, “There is a legal open transaction between the Government and a private company, it has been dismantled till 40 percent, you are too late for this”.

The petition was filed by Envitech Marine Consultants Pvt Ltd, seeking a direction to the Union Ministry of Defence to allow it to buy Viraat. The company wanted to convert the ship into a maritime museum and multi-functional adventure centre.

Previously, the Bombay High Court had asked the Union government to decide on the petitioner’s request that decommissioned aircraft carrier INS Viraat be handed over to it, so that the ship could be converted into a museum. The High Court had then disposed of the matter. The warship is awaiting dismantling at a ship scrapping yard at Alang in Gujarat.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had stayed the dismantling of the warship. However today, it dismissed the petition challenging the Bombay High Court order. ILNS/KR/SNG/RJ
