Advocate Nedumpara had orally mentioned before the Bench seeking a stay on the verdict. He said that there was no positive order in the September 28 verdict which allowed the entry of women of all ages into Sabarimala.

On Tuesday, the court had decided to hear in open court all the 49 review petitions that challenged the decision of the court allowing entry of women of all ages into the Sabarimala temple. The decision was taken in the chambers of the Chief Justice, who along with four other judges studied the reviews. The review pleas would now be heard in open court on January 22 2019.

The court however did not stay its earlier order passed on September 28, in which it had allowed the entry of women of all age groups into the temple.
