After a 44-day summer break, the Supreme Court will resume work on Monday to a lengthy list of matters, and is expected to deliver judgments in the coming days in crucial cases including Aadhaar’s constitutional validity, the power struggle in Delhi.

The top court will resume hearing appeals against an eight-year-old verdict of the Allahabad High Court on the Ayodhya dispute and those challenging the practice of polygamy among Muslims.

A verdict is likely on Monday on a plea challenging the appointment of incumbent Chief Vigilance Commissioner KV Chaudhary and Vigilance Commissioner TM Bhasin.

Matters pertaining to air pollution in Delhi-NCR, Assam National Register of Citizens (NRC), Vaishno Devi rehabilitation of mule owners, and Manipur encounter killings, among others, are likely to come up for hearing.

A verdict is also expected soon on the review petition filed by death row convicts in the 2012 Delhi rape case soon. In May. the Supreme Court had reserved its verdict on the plea of two condemned convicts — Vinay Sharma and Pawan Gupta — seeking a review of the 2017 verdict by which they, along with two others, were awarded death penalty.
