HC permits ordinary filing of cases

Chandigarh, June 4

Streamlining further the process of hearing cases during the pandemic, the Punjab and Haryana High Court today opened its doors for ordinary filing of cases. The decision is in sync with the demand of the advocates and is being construed as first step towards normal functioning of the courts once the circumstances permit.

Available information suggests the lawyers would now be able to file cases even where urgency is not involved. The filing would be physically as well. The filing since March following the Covid outbreak was by and large being done through the virtual mode with stress on cases involving urgency.

The order by Chief Justice Ravi Shanker Jha through Registrar-General Sanjiv Berry indicates that civil and other cases, such as regular second appeals, could now be filed and scrutinised over a period of time to pave way for their hearing once normal functioning is resumed. — TNS
