The Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association (SCAORA) has requested the Supreme Court to "partially cancel" the Summer vacations and conduct hearings between the period of May 18, 2020 and June 26, 2020.

The request has been made in the backdrop of loss of court work and severe hardships inflicted on both Advocates as well as litigants, during the COVID-19 pandemic and the nationwide lockdown.

A resolution to this effect was passed by all the members of the SCAORA unanimously on Monday, April 13, in a meeting convened via video conferencing.

In effect, it has been urged that the period of Summer vacations that were scheduled to begin from May 18 be restricted only between June 22 and July 5, to make up for the loss of court working hours.

"Such Summer vacations, even though limited, will enable the Advocates hailing from different parts of the country to visit their families. SCAORA requests it's members to render their fullest co-operation," a statement issued by the Association read.

Notably, the Supreme Court decided to restrict its functioning to hear only urgent matters on March 13 and the same is expected to continue till May 3 until the lockdown is lifted.
