Considering the pandemic situation in the state, the Jharkhand High Court on Thursday extended the life of all interim orders passed by it or the courts subordinate to it till February 15, 2022. The decision was taken by a Full Bench of the High Court comprising Chief Justice Ravi Ranjan and Justices Sujit Narayan Prasad and Rajesh Shankar. 

The decision came In an interlocutory application filed by the Advocates' Association, seeking the extension to avoid such necessary filing of petitions for extending the peremptory time, application for enlargement of provisional bail, or any other interim relief or any other interim relief, etc.

"In view of extraordinary situation which is prevalent not only in the State but in the entire country due to menace of Corona pandemic and the period of interim reliefs granted in various cases of this Court and Civil Courts might have expired or would expire in near future and there is likelihood that the Courts may be flooded with the petitions to be filed by such petitioners/appellants or other persons in whose favour interim relief or provisional bail etc. have been granted but may have lapsed or would lapse in between the aforesaid period and further, this Court in order to maintain social distancing and to avoid such unnecessary filing of petitions for extending the peremptory time, application for enlargement of provisional bail or any other interim relief or any order for compliance of any particular direction of the Court which could not be complied with in various civil and criminal cases including appeals, writ petitions and miscellaneous cases filed in the High Court as well as in the Civil Courts of the State of Jharkhand including the present case, in exercise of its powers under Article 226 and 227 of the Constitution of India declare that such interim orders as well as the orders of peremptory nature passed by all the Benches of this Court would automatically stand extended till 15.02.2022, save and except those cases in which orders have been passed by the concerned court granting interim relief without giving a particular date, i.e., till further order(s) to be passed or such cases in which the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India has given any particular direction", the Court directed.

However, it has been clarified that in case of any urgency in any of the matters mentioned above, the aggrieved party would be at liberty to approach the Court as may be advised.

Case Title: Advocates' Association (Regd.), Jharkhand High Court v. The State of Jharkhand
