Tweeted by @AIR
The Supreme Court heard 593 matters through video-conferencing and delivered judgement in 215 of them in a month during the unprecedented nationwide lockdown.
 
As COVID-19 infections spread in the country, the Supreme Court has stopped in court hearings on March 23, two days before the lockdown came into force, but opened up to a virtual new way of functioning, albeit with a reduced strength.
 
In normal times, the apex court disposes of nearly 3,500 cases on an average a month. A total of 87 benches heard 593 cases on 17 working days between 23rd of March and 24th of April, according to data provided by the court.
   
Though the first phase of the nationwide lockdown for containing the spread of Coronavirus started on 25th of March, the apex court had issued a circular on March 23 restricting entry of advocates and litigants in its premises.
 
The circular had said that only matters involving extreme urgency would be heard by the top court through video-conferencing during the lockdown, which has now been extended till May 3.
