The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) has written to Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana to consider resuming the physical functioning of Supreme Court in view of dip in COVID-19 cases..The SCBA through its president Senior Advocate Vikas Singh stated that physical functioning of court can be resumed in compliance with COVID appropriate behaviour. .In its letter to CJI, SCBA stressed upon how it has undertaken vaccination program for lawyers aged below 45 on a war footing and while lawyers above 45 years have already been getting vaccinated since March, 2020. .Regarding the physical hearing, the SCBA suggested that on miscellaneous days there should be six slots of 45 minutes each. Each slot can have ten matters and in this way sixty matters can be decided in a physical hearing, the bar body said. .On non miscellaneous days such as Tuesdays and Thursdays, two slots of 45 minutes each should be assigned for miscellaneous or final disposal matters. Thereafter, three slots of an hour each could be assigned for two matters. .The association also mooted the idea of not allowing litigants and media inside courtroom for the time being so that there is no overcrowding. The media can be allowed to watch the proceedings virtually, it added. .The association also urged the CJI to grant permission to lawyers to access libraries and lounges in the high security zone of the Supreme Court.
