The Bombay High Court on Tuesday issued notices doubling the total number of benches hearing urgent judicial matters at the principal bench, Nagpur, Aurangabad and High Court of Bombay at Goa. Barring Goa, in all the other benches, these judges will be sitting in two separate three hour shifts during the day.
This means that the total number of cases heard in a day during this pandemic will also increase which may in turn provide much relief to litigants.
Starting June 5, hearings will be conducted between 10:45 am and 1:45 pm in the first shift by five different benches at the principal bench. Thereafter, five other benches will take over the hearing of urgent cases via video conferencing in the second shift between 2 pm to 5 pm.
Four out of the ten benches that are sitting in a day at the principal bench are division benches whereas the rest are single benches. Hearings will take place on June 5, 9, 12 and 16.
