In view of the facts stated above, the Court opined that there is no need to modify or extend further the benefits granted vide order dated 11.01.2022 as the same is upto 28.02.2022.

The Court, however, clarified that if the situation so arises in the future, the same shall be considered. With this, the applications stood disposed of.

It may be noted that on January 11, 2022, restoring a suo moto case registered in the year 2020, the Allahabad High Court had extended the life of all interim orders passed by the High Court and courts subordinate to it, including the Tribunals till February 28, 2022, in light of the Covid-19 situation in the State of Uttar Pradesh.
