The Madras High Court has intimated that any judicial or administrative function of the Courts will strictly be conducted online only, between the period of April 26 and April 29.

The announcement has been made due to inability of the authorities to allow physical movement of employees for attending duties on these dates, in view of complete lockdown announced by the State Government.

The government of Tamil Nadu has imposed "complete lockdown" in Chennai, Madurai and Coimbatore from 6.00 a.m. on April 26, 2020 till 9.00 p.m. on April 29, 2020. Similarly, Salem and Tiruppur will remain under complete lockdown from 6.00 a.m. on April 26, 2020 till 9.00 p.m. on April 28, 2020.

In a notification issued by the Registrar General, it has been informed,

"Even though Courts are still exempted, yet, any judicial or administrative function of the Courts shall henceforth for the period of four days, viz. from 26th of April, 2020 to 29th of April, 2020 be carried out through video-conferencing or any such communication facilities only. There shall be no physical movement of the staff for these four days. The Registrars, Private Secretaries or other staff, if required, may communicate through video-conferencing or Whats App Calls."

The Madras High Court resorted to observe restrictive functioning on March 18 and began to hear only urgent matters via video conferencing.
