The Bombay High Court has extended operation of all interim orders passed by the High Court and subordinate courts till August 31. Previously, the High Court on June 15 had extended all interim orders till July 15.
Chief Justice Dipankar Datta, Justice AA Sayed, Justice SS Shinde and Justice KK Tated in an order dated July 15 noted-
"Since this bench last assembled on June 15, 2020, the situation arising out of the pandemic is yet to improve. To serve the ends of justice, the interim order initially passed on March 26, 2020, subsequently extended by orders dated April 15, 2020 and June 15, 2020 and operative till today, shall stand extended till August 31, 2020, if not extended otherwise in the meanwhile, on the same terms."
Court clarified that any order or decree for eviction/dispossession/demolition which has been passed by any court/tribunal/authority subsequent to the order dated June 15, 2020, shall also remain in abeyance till August 31, 2020, unless directed otherwise.
With the continued rise in number of cases in Mumbai and the State of Maharashtra in general, the Bombay High Court has been conducting hearing in urgent and specific cases via video conferencing only.
