The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) asked on Tuesday the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters' Association (BGMEA) to give an undertaking saying that it will not file any petition seeking more time to relocate its office from the city's Hatirjheel area, reports UNB.

The SC will consider their time petition this time once it gets the undertaking in this regard.

A four-member SC bench, led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, took the decision.

Advocate Kamrul Haque Siddiqui and Imtiaz Moinul Islam stood for the BGMEA while Attorney General Mahbubey Alam for the state.

Earlier on Sunday, the Supreme Court set Tuesday to deliver its order on the time petition filed by the BGMEA.

On March 5 last, BGMEA authorities filed a one-year time petition with the Appellate Division as its seven months' time given in September in 2017 by the SC for relocating its office building expired in March.
