Delhi HC Bar Association requests Chief Justice to prepone the resumption of Physical Hearing.

The Delhi High Court Bar Association has written to the Chief Justice of  Delhi High Court to prepone the resumption of  Physical hearing from August 31, which was earlier scheduled to September 9.

The Bar Association reasoned that “it is a matter of public record that there has been a constant and steady decline in fresh Covid - 19 cases in Delhi since mid May 2021 and the average number of fresh Covid-t9 cases per day have been in the vicinity of 50-60. As on today, the positivity rate is less than 0.02% and the number of active cases in a population of more than 2 crores, are a mere 467.”

The Bar Council also highlighted the adverse effect as not only has the closure of physical functioning of the High Court severely financially impacted an overwhelming majority of the members of our Bar especially the younger members, it has also acted to the grave decrement of the consumers of justice. Its detrimental effect on the justice administration system in as much as the impact on the backlog of cases is concerned, cannot even be assessed at this stage.

Given the above statistics, the Bar Association hoped that  physical functioning of the Hon’ble Court requires to be resumed without any further delay. The Bar Association, by the present representation, most respectfully seeks the following:-

(a) The date of resumption of physical functioning of the lion le Court may kindly be advanced to 31.08.2021,
