The court order came after it was told that, till now, no claim has been made for recovery of 40 crore rupees from Uttar Pradesh and 33 crore rupees from Haryana for the loss caused to Railways due to agitation in the two states. A bench comprising justices G S Singhvi and V Gopala Gowda directed the competent authority of Railways to lodge claim within two weeks to the concerned authorities.
