Amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the Karnataka High Court has extended the operation of all interim orders passed by itself as well as those passed by subordinate courts and tribunals till August 7.

An administrative order to this effect was issued based on a judicial order earlier passed by Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar.

Earlier, the High Court had extended the life of all interim orders passed by itself, as well as all other courts and tribunals in the state till July 6.

The following interim orders have been extended now to ensure that litigants do not suffer on account of their inability to approach the courts of law:

i) All interim orders passed by the Karnataka High Court, all the District Courts, Civil Courts, Family Courts, Labour Courts, Industrial Tribunals and all other Tribunals in the State over which this Court has power of superintendence, which are due to expire within a period of one month from today, will continue to operate for a period of one month from today. We, however, make it clear that those interim orders which are not of a limited duration and are to operate till further orders will remain unaffected.

ii) All bail/anticipatory bail orders which are likely to expire in one month from today will stand extended for a period of one month from today.

iii) All eviction, dispossession or demolition orders that have already been passed by the High Court, District or Civil Courts shall remain in abeyance for a period of one month from today.

This apart, the Court has further urged the state government, its agencies and instrumentalities to slow down the process with respect to taking action on demolition and eviction of persons.
