In view of the surge in COVID-19 cases in the national capital, dates of hearing in pending matters listed before National Company Law Tribunal, Principal Bench and other benches at New Delhi have been pushed to dates beyond July 20.

As per the Notice dated June 30 issued by NCLT, cases which are listed from July 1 to September 9, have been renotified for hearing from July 20 onwards.

The specific dates of adjournment are mentioned in the Notice.

The Tribunal would continue to hear urgent matters as earlier.

In order to expedite virtual hearings and dispensation of justice without any delay during the COVID-19 lockdown, NCLT had asked litigants and stakeholders under Companies Act, 2013 and Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 to file Joint Memo of Written Submissions.

Last month, summer vacation at all the Benches of National Company Law Tribunal was cancelled for the year.
