Justice DY Chandrachud informs his court that all residence of #SupremeCourt judges is now equipped with 1000 MBPS internet connection speed

Justice Chandrachud: We invited parties to take up the video conferencing option for court hearings. Technical committee evaluated bids Image
Justice Chandrachud: Tender has already been awarded. Some things are being put into place. It will soon start now and we will hand over everything to them. CISCO could not customise it for us since we are open court unlike Delhi High Court

Justice Chandrachud: Depending on local issues, we have left it to Chief Justices to adopt modes to the High Courts of those Chief Justices.... also it depends on the pressure on the court for links. For SC, if its an important PIL a lot of people want to watch
Sr Adv Siddharth Luthra: there needs to be a system to mute the speakers because at times hearings get interrupted

Justice Chandrachud: In this new software we will have that option to mute counsels

Residences of all Supreme Court judges equipped with 1000 Mbps internet; tender awarded for new virtual hearing platform: Justice DY Chandrachud

#MadrasHighCourt ORDER: The setting up of the commission can by no stretch of imagination be seen to be contrary to any Supreme Court order, whether letter or spirit or as a counter to any legislative action taken by the Union or process put in place. #NEET
