Chandigarh, June 10

More than two months after the courts went into restricted functioning mode following the outbreak of Covid-19, the subordionate judiciary in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh was today given a green signal to permit the filing of non-urgent cases not involving the need for granting immediate relief. The final decision would be of the sessions judges based on the prevailing circumstances.

After considering the prevailing situation, the Punjab and Haryana High Court's Administrative Committee today resolved that the district and sessions judges may allow the filing of non-urgent cases, in addition to the urgent cases, in their sessions division.

While regulating the filing of such cases, the district and sessions judges would ensure there was no overcrowding in the courts and adequate measures were taken at their own level. They were also asked to utilise their resources to the optimum to regulate the footfall.

An order issued on behalf of Chief Justice Ravi Shanker Jha by Registrar-General Sanjiv Berry added that such filing would be staggered to prevent overcrowding at the filing counter also.
