It is contempt to disobey or to disregard orders of Supreme Court.
But if people are not punished for disobedience, the disobedience is bound to happen.
Today’s TOI news report about halting of work in various information commissions on pretext of some order of Supreme Court is disturbing.
Most probably, some people are responsible for misinterpreting orders of Supreme Court. The mess may be cleared by SC by passing further clarificatory orders.
But it is desired that Supreme Court orders are respected and obeyed by authorities.
It is upto Supreme Court to see that it’s orders command respect.
