In the light of the Coronavirus outbreak, a Supreme Court Bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde and Justice DY Chandrachud will hear the matters through Video conferencing Tomorrow

As per the cause-list, this Bench will assemble after the hearing of matters listed before regular bench is over.

The Lawyers have to address the Court from monitoring room (No: FW-56) old Court wing)

Further to this, another notification has been released today, according to which a full court meeting shall be held on March 23, 2020 at 12:30 in order to discuss further measures for containment of the coronavirus outbreak and to discuss the suggestions of the SBCA & SCAORA.

In the wake of the COVID19 pandemic, the Executive Committee of Supreme Court Bar Association passed a resolution on Saturday urging the Supreme Court to declare vacation for four weeks from March 23.

The SCAORA had also urged for an unequivocal shutdown for a period of two weeks. In view of its recommendations made on March 21, 2020, it was further stated that in the event this suggestion is not accepted by the Chief Justice of India and the Judges of the Supreme Court, there was a dire need for further limiting its functioning in wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Supreme Court has been functioning in its limited capacity since March 16, 2020. The Top Court has also installed thermal-screening, hand sanitiser stations and declaratory forms for entrants briefing travel and health history.
