The Supreme Court today fixed October 20 as the date for hearing petitions filed in regard to the Ambani gas dispute.

A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan decided to post the matter for October after Reliance Industries counsel suggested the matter be heard on the 20th of that month.

Anil Ambani group counsel Mukul Rohtagi said he had no objection.

The cross appeals filed by Mukesh and Anil Ambani group firm on the petition filed by the government was to come up for hearing on September 1, but was postponed because the Chief Justice has to lead a constitutional bench on that day.
