The Allahabad High Court has extended the operation of its interim orders as well as those of courts subordinate to it till October 31.
A Division Bench of Justices Pankaj Mittal and Rohit Ranjan Agarwal passed the order on Wednesday.
Noting that the regular functioning of "most of the District Courts, Civil Courts, Family Courts, Labour Courts, Industrial Tribunals and other Tribunals" was disturbed on account of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the Court deemed it appropriate to extend the operation of interim orders "in the interests of justice".
The Bench also ruled that the lockdown period and the days during which the working of Courts and tribunals has been suspended were to be excluded when calculating the period of a caveat's validity.
On August 19, the administrative wing of the Allahabad High Court also extended the suspension of its proceedings for two more days, continuing the operation of its circular dated August 16.
