In a case registered suo moto, a Full Bench of the Calcutta High Court has extended the subsistence of all the interim orders passed by it and the courts subordinate to it till April 30, provided they were subsisting on March 16.

The order is passed in the backdrop of "non-availability of access to Courts", due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.

The extension has been granted by a bench of Chief Justice Thottathil B Radhakrishnan and Justices Dipankar Datta, Sanjib Banerjee, IP Mukerji and Joymalya Bagchi, and it will be applicable to all the subordinate courts including the Tribunals within the State of West Bengal and Union Territory of Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

The order states,

"In exercise of the authority under Articles 226 and 227 of the Constitution, all matters in which interim orders were subsisting as on [March 16, 2020] and which may have expired or which are due to expire on or before April 9, 2020 will stand extended till April 30, 2020 or until further orders of Court, unless specifically dealt with by any judicial order to the contrary. All parties affected by the continuation of the interim orders will be at liberty to apply for vacating or variation of such orders."
