Chandigarh, May 23

Two months after the Punjab and Haryana High Court went into restricted functioning mode following the Covid outbreak, it has decided to cancel the summer vacations for itself and the subordinate courts in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh. The cases would continue to be heard in the HC through video-conferencing.

An order passed on behalf of Chief Justice Ravi Shanker Jha Saturday said it was notified that the summer vacations in the Punjab and Haryana High Court at Chandigarh from June 1 to June 26 stood cancelled.

It also notified that the vacations in the subordinate courts from June 1 to June 30 also stood cancelled and the courts would function with the present arrangement of hearing of cases. The order comes at a time when the total pending cases in Haryana is 8,92,041, while no less than 6,46,342 cases are awaiting adjudication in Punjab. — TNS
