The order was passed by a Full Bench of the High Court in view of the fact that the High Court had, on April 18, decided that it will only hear extremely urgent matters for the time being in view of COVID-19 pandemic.

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday ordered that all interim orders issued by it and by courts subordinate to it subsisting as on April 19, 2021 will stand extended till July 16, 2021 or until further orders (Court on its own motion v. State of NCT of Delhi).

Taking suo moto cognizance of the aforesaid extraordinary circumstances, under Article 226 & 227 of the Constitution of India, it is hereby ordered that in all matters pending before this court and courts subordinate to this court, wherein such interim orders issued were subsisting as on 19.04.2021 and expired or will expire thereafter, the same shall stand automatically extended till 16.07.2021 or until further orders, except where any orders to the contrary have been passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in any particular matter, during the intervening period.

The order was passed by a Full Bench of the High Court in view of the fact that the High Court had, on April 18, decided that it will only hear extremely urgent matters for the time being in view of COVID-19 pandemic.

A Division Bench of the High Court had on Monday taken note of the issue suo motu and posted the case before the Chief Justice for constituting an appropriate Bench to pass orders.

Subsequently, the matter came up on Tuesday before the Full Bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi, Rekha Palli and Talwant Singh which proceeded to extend all interim orders.

“Needless to clarify that in case, the aforesaid extension of interim order causes any hardship of an extreme nature to a party to such proceeding, they would be at liberty to seek appropriate relief, as may be advised,” the Court clarified.

This order be uploaded on the website of this Court and be conveyed to all the Standing Counsel, UOI, GNCTD, DDA, CIVIC AUTHORITIES, Delhi High Court Bar Association, and all other Bar Associations of Delhi, as well as to all District Courts subordinate to this Court
