Five constitution benches of the Supreme Court would start hearing from October 10 five key issues, including the power tussle between the Centre and Delhi government over administrative jurisdiction and a matter relating to passive euthanasia.

Besides these, the constitution benches, each consisting of five judges, would also deal with issues like whether a parliamentary committee report can be referred to or relied upon during judicial proceedings, how to add income for future prospects of victims in motor accident claims and whether the top court can entertain a plea for making an arbitration award a rule of the court.

The top court, through a notice published on its website, said that its constitution benches would start hearing these matters from next Tuesday.The court had in February 2014 referred to a constitution bench a plea favouring voluntary passive euthanasia in cases where a person is suffering from terminal illness and has no chance of revival and recovery as per the medical opinion.
