While hearing a batch of petitions today, the Madras High Court directed the State to ensure that all of the State Government's communications in relation to Covid-19 - Orders, Notifications be uploaded chronologically on the Government's website and on stopcorona.

Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthil Ramamoorthy issued the direction while disposing of a matter that sought this particular relief.


To the Chief Justice's query as to whether the notifications relating to covid were regularly uploaded, Advocate General R Shanmugasundaram that almost all such notifications have already been uploaded online. The only shortfall was perhaps on account of some government officers getting infected by the COVID-19 virus since the government is presently working with only 40 percent of its staff.

Recording this submission, the Court proceeded to dispose of the matter.

The Court stressed that all future government orders and notifications would have to be similarly published in chronological order, so that they are available at the click of a button.
