In order to facilitate seamless live telecast of Court proceedings, the High Court has also framed its own Rules, namely, the Gauhati High Court (Live Streaming and Recording of Court Proceedings) Rules, 2022 which have also come into effect from today.

"It is believed that the live-streaming of Court proceedings will strengthen the rule of law and the idea of open Court, and it will also improve access to justice, which, in turn, will ensure an effective administration of justice", the High Court said in a press release.

Yesterday, in a historic move, the Supreme Court commenced the live-streaming of the hearings in the Constitution Benches.

The High Courts of Gujarat, Karnataka and Odisha are also live-streamed.
