The Supreme Court has finally approved the use of A4 size papers for filing documents, with print on both the sides. Presently, all the filings in the SC have to be made on legal size paper, with single side print.
A decision to this effect has been taken in environmental interest, in a meeting of the Committee for Rationalization of Use of Papers in the Supreme Court of India and for Introduction of Paperless Courts with members of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) and the Supreme Court Advocates on Record Association (SCAORA).
The SC Committee had invited the Bar Members for discussion on the rules relating to paper and other parameters with a view to minimize its consumption, last month.
The circular, issued on Thursday, also intimates that the Judges of the Committee have allowed rectification of the amendments, made with respect to the filing of caveats.
