The Bar Council of India has developed four well equipped video conferencing rooms for the benefit of lawyers of the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court, which will be made available starting May 26.
These rooms will be made available to the lawyers free of any charge on a first come first serve basis and the advocates willing to use this facility will have to book the room for their desired time slot by sending an email on the prescribed ID.
These fully equipped rooms complete with Wifi internet will also have computer friendly staff to help the lawyers with using the technology.
The BCI has imposed a restriction on the number of advocates who can make use of a room at any given time and requests the lawyers to ensure that the norms of safe distancing are maintained and the lawyers are wearing N95 masks.
While shoes will not be permitted inside these video conferencing rooms, lawyers are also requested to ensure that alcohol-based hand sanitizers are carried with them.
The BCI says it is also in the process of developing Arbitration and Mediation centres and hopes that the same will be functional in the next 5-6 weeks.
