Former Supreme Court (SC) judge Justice Shiva Kirti Singh is going to continue as chairman of Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) for three more months until fresh appointment is made.

In the meantime, the process of appointment will be expedited.

The order was passed by the SC on the plea filed by the advocates practicing in TDSAT seeking setting aside the letter dated May 31, 2021 of the centre.
