The Allahabad High Court has deferred the decision to partially open its court premises from today, i.e. May 8, 2020.
Both the benches of the High Court were scheduled to open from May 8, 2020, "in shifts". It was intimated by way of a notification dated May 4 that the High Court benches will open from May 8, 2020 "in two different shifts having different sessions for criminal as well as civil matters."
On Wednesday, the High Court Chief Justice Govind Mathur deferred the re-opening of the Lucknow bench, until further orders.
Now, vide a notification dated May 7, opening of the Principal Seat for physical appearance has also been deferred.
The modalities for functioning of courts in shifts have therefore been kept in abeyance, and the protocol for E-filing and hearing of cases via video conferencing shall continue. The same may be accessed here.
