SC dismisses plea against National Emblem installed atop Central Vista

The Supreme Court dismissed a plea on Friday that claimed the State Emblem installed atop the Central Vista building violated the State Emblem of India (Prohibition Against Improper Use) Act of 2005.

The emblem was seen by a bench of Justices MR Shah and Krishna Murari, who concluded that it did not break the law.

The Court observed that “the impression the emblem provides relies on the mind of the person.”

After looking at the insignia for which a complaint was lodged, the Court stated in its order that it could not be claimed that it violates the Act.

Advocates Aldanish Rein and Ramesh Kumar Mishra filed the petition, claiming that the lions depicted in the emblem that Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled appeared to be “ferocious and aggressive” with their “mouth open and canine visible,” in contrast to the State Emblem kept in the Sarnath Museum, where the lions appear to be “calm and composed.”

According to the argument, the Central government “manifested severe arbitrariness in violating the sacredness of the state Emblem” by changing the design.

“The state emblem of India is the mark of the Identity of the Republic of India. The Republic of India belongs to We the Indians. When this identity is interfered with, it hurts the national sentiments of its citizens,” the plea said.

The Prime Minister revealed the State Emblem in July after having it cast onto the roof of the new Parliament building.
