The Supreme Court upheld the TADA court's verdict and reduced Sanjay Dutt's six year jail term given by TADA court to five years.

Sanjay Dutt, who has has already spent 18 months behind bars during the trial, would now have to undergo the rest of the sentence i.e spend 3 years and 6 months in jail.
