Web Desk(TVM)Updated: Thursday Feb 3, 2022

Kochi : The High Court on Thursday upheld Single Bench verdict that approved  cancellation of Cochin Coroporation contract with a private firm for generating electricity from garbage dump at Brahmapuram.  The ruling by  Division Bench  comprising  Chief Justice S. Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chali, came over appeal filed by JG Eco Power Pvt Ltd.

The govt  had canceled the contract following company’s failure to submit evidence in proof of its financial stability. The Single Bench had ruled it found nothing wrong with that decision - a verdict JG Eco Power sought to challenge.

Senior Advocate Ranjith Thamban appeared for the Corporation. Standing Counsel Janardahanan Shenoy and Senior Government Pleader S Kannan represented the government.
