COVID-19 has brought a dire situation where there is a non-availability of access to the Courts. The present order is about the cases pending with interim orders. These matters are pending in the High Courts and Subordinate Courts.

On 24th March 2020, the Court issued an order relating to the hearing on interim orders. The order stood corrected and extended to 30th June 2020. However on 23rd April 2020, a change was made, and the date of extension as given by the Court was 30th September 2020. On 23rd June, the said extension was confirmed. This is until further orders from the Court. There are choices of vacating or variation given to the parties.

The choices offered are because the hearing of cases is likely to receive extensions. The same order is to apply to the Original Side of the Court.

The order is to be circulated to the Tribunals, Learned Advocate General and the members of the Bar. is now on Telegram. Follow us for regular legal updates and judgements from the court.
