The Administrative Committee of the Madras High Court has decided to expand the scope of physical court hearings in Subordinate Courts by enhancing the number of cases being heard, as well as permitting such of those litigants to come to Court, whose cases are listed for hearing.
The decision has been taken in consultation with Principal District Judges; City Civil Court, Chennai; Chief Judge, Court of Small Causes, Chennai; Chief Judge, Puducherry; and respective Bar Associations of the Districts.
It has been intimated that:
Keeping in view the increase of COVID death rates in the Union Territory of Puducherry, the present system of functioning of the Courts shall continue until fresh reports are received for resuming normal functions. This is also applicable for Karaikal District.
The restrictions above shall continue to be applicable in respect of Thirutharaipoondi Taluk in Tiruvarur District.
The question of opening of Bar Rooms, Chambers and Canteens inside the premises of the District Courts shall be considered by the Administrative Committee on a later date.
