The High Court of Manipur has stayed the service reengagement of Manipur State Power Distribution Company Limited (MSPDCL) Managing Director (MD) Ng. Subhachandra and Executive Director (Tech) H. Shantikumar. The service periods of both MD and ED were extended for another year by the Government of Manipur by its order dated January 5, 2023. 
Recently, a case of corruption was also filed against Ng. Subhachandra and Hijam Santikumar to Lokayukta Manipur for the misappropriation of funds during the time of implementation of the Saubhagya Scheme.
The stay order was passed today by the bench of Justice MV Muralidaran after admitting a writ petition filed by one N. Jasobanta Singh and two other petitioners challenging the state government’s decision.
The HC has fixed March 13 as the next date for hearing the case.
