Decided to resume physical hearing due to pressure from bar associations: CJI NV Ramana

The CJI was responding to a mentioning made by Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal with regard to certain restrictions placed on the number of lawyers allowed inside court rooms for physical hearing. Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana on Wednesday said that the Supreme Court took the decision to resume physical hearing of cases on Wednesdays and Thursdays due to pressure from the Bar.

The CJI revealed the same during a mentioning made by Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal with regard to certain restrictions placed on the number of lawyers allowed inside court rooms for physical hearing.

“I am sorry to mention this…but we wanted to talk about the decision of the Court regarding physical hearing. It is impossible to have only one lawyer inside the courtroom when volumes of cases and files are so much,” Sibal said.

“You know why we took this decision. Even though some of my colleagues had reservations, we went ahead as bar associations were saying we are not opening courts,” CJI Ramana responded.
