The Karnataka High Court has extended the interim orders passed by the Karnataka High Court (Principal Seat and Benches at Dharwad and Kalaburagi), all the District Courts, Civil Courts, Family Courts, Labour Courts, Industrial Tribunals and all other Tribunals in the State over which the Court has the power of superintendence which are due to expire, to continue to operate till August 23.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar said as follows:

"It is true that the number of positive cases of COVID-19 in the State have drastically come down. To avoid any rush to the Courts for extension of the interim orders, we propose to extend all the interim orders perhaps, for the last time. Accordingly, we direct that the interim directions issued on 16th April 2021 and 22nd April 2021, which were extended from time to time shall continue to operate till 23rd August 2021."

The directions issued in the orders of April 16 and 22 reads thus:

* If any orders of eviction, dispossession or demolition have been passed by the High Court, District Courts or Civil Courts, the same shall remain in abeyance.

*It is, however, made clear that if any party desires to apply for vacating the interim orders, it will be open for the said party to apply to the concerned Courts/Tribunals praying for vacating the orders. If such applications are made, the Courts/Tribunals are free to consider the same in accordance with law without being influenced by continuation of interim reliefs by this Court.

* The interim orders of bail and interim orders of pre-arrest bail passed by various Criminal Courts in Karnataka which are likely to expire between 23rd April, 2021 and 29th May, 2021 shall stand extended to 29th May, 2021. However, if applications are made by the State or prosecuting agency or by any person for cancellation of the bail, the concerned Courts will hear such applications in accordance with law.
