NEW DELHI — The Supreme Court of India on Wednesday has given permission to the parties involved in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute case to settle the matter, through mediation as well, if they so desired.
If any settlement could reach to the dispute then they can place the settlement report before the apex court.
The five-judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, also said, "simultaneously the mediation process can go along with the hearing, which is going on in SC, and if an amicable settlement is reached through by it, the same can be filed before the SC" https://t.co/55bPIJkt1t

The Supreme Court was responding to a letter written by the Justice F.M. Kalifulla-led three-member mediation panel on Tuesday that sought the court’s nod to resume talks in the Ayodhya dispute case.
However, the apex court made it clear that the daily hearings in the case will go on and the proceedings will continue to remain confidential.
