The Supreme Court on Friday asked the expert panel, constituted by it to carry out a multi-disciplinary study on the effects of endosulfan, to ascertain the conditions under which the insecticide’s unused stock could be exported to other countries.

A SC bench issued the directions to the joint committee of Indian Council for Medical Research and agriculture commissioner's committee to apprise the court on how much stock of Endosulfan could be exported against the existing orders.

Giving three weeks time to the panel for coming out with a report on the court queries, the bench also asked the committee to find out how the un-exported pesticide could be disposed in accordance with the environmental norms.
