Supreme Court hints at hearings via video conferencing on a 'large scale', to sit in Courtrooms from next week

Debayan Roy

After nearly two months of hearing only "extremely urgent matters", it appears that the Supreme Court will hear matters through video conferencing on a "large scale".

An observation to this effect was made by a three-judge Bench of the Supreme Court, while hearing a bail application.

The Bench of Justices L Nageshwara Rao, Abdul Nazeer and Sanjiv Khanna hinted at the same while hearing the matter challenging a Delhi High Court order sentencing the convict under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code. It was observed that the matter would be taken up urgently when hearings begin on larger scale.
