The Supreme Court today indicated that it may lift the stay on the dismantling of decommissioned aircraft carrier INS Viraat. It had in February barred the process of pulling apart the historic vessel retired from service in 2017. It will now hear the case after a week. The court has, meanwhile, asked the Mumbai-based company, which has sought the lifting of the ban, to focus on its supervision report.
