Besides the Centre, Indian Radiological and Imaging Association, the association of radiologists in the country, had moved the apex court challenging the High Court's decision on the issue.

It had said that the special constitutional provision Article 239AA dealing with Delhi does not "dilute" the effect of Article 239 which relates to the union territory and hence, the concurrence of the LG in administrative issues was "mandatory".

To this, the bench said there are three things - executive action, difference of opinion and validity of such opinion, which needs to be deliberated. The higher the degree of power, the higher the degree of trust, he argued before the Constitution bench.
