Courts in the State have been functioning virtually through video conference platforms since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March 2020.
The decision regarding High Court was taken at a meeting of the full court of High Court and a notice communicating the decision was issued on Saturday.
“The causelists published for November 22, 2021 will be taken up in physical courts in the respective courts/ chambers shown in the list,” the notice said.
The hearing in all district courts will also be via physical mode from November 22. An office memorandum regarding the same was issued on November 19.
The Kerala High Court Advocates Association (KHCAA) had earlier written to the Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court requesting that physical hearings at the High Court and all subordinate courts in the State be resumed from November 1, 2021.
The KHCAA had subsequently, organised a protest meet on November 1 against the non-resumption of physical hearings at the High Court and subordinate courts in the State.
