#SupremeCourt hears a plea seeking to delicate virtual hearing as a fundamental right #VirtualHearing
Sr Adv Manan Kumar Mishra: All High Courts or atleast HC bar associations should be made party. At the moment the infrastructure is not fit to accomodate this
CJI DY Chandrachud: why don't you ask report from state bar associations on their take and inform us. Centre has approved the 7,000 crores for phase 3 e courts protect. This can be used to make technology available to the lawyers
CJI: Technology has to be for the inclusion and not exclusion. We have to think of the bottom layer of the pyramid also and not only the top that you see here
CJI: What is most disturbing to see is that some Chief Justices of High Courts are doing away with technology set up for virtual hearings. This is not how you deal with public money. It is not that you are technology friendly or not. But you cannot do away with the infrastructure
CJI: We have entered into the a memorandum of understanding with common service centres so that our e courts facilities are available even at the village levels.
CJI: Technology is not for the pandemic and is for here to stay. Some judges say that we come to court then why can't lawyers. That begs the point they judges and lawyers operate in a very different atmosphere.
CJI: As a chairperson of the e committee I am deeply concerned that no one should be left behind.

Adv Siddharth R Gupta: In case of HC of Madhya Pradesh let hybrid be there atleast for the HC level
CJI: The Parliamentary committee had come to the Supreme Court and as a puisine judge I made a 3 hours long representation. On that basis funds were allocated. They were very receptive. Now High Court Chief Justices will have to take this ahead.
CJI: Problem is some Chief Justice say they like technology and some say they don't. Now I am gonna make sure that all falls on line and are on equal board. You are savvy or not get acquainted with it.
CJI: We have also started e SCR project and making judgments available in local languages
CJI: we will formulate and pass orders. We have to ensure that nobody is left behind due to technology. #SupremeCourt

Sr Adv Harish Salve: I am using the i-pad. I am opposing the reference. This was an anti defection law and not anti dissent law. From the time of Mr Palkhiwala it was contended that it becomes an anti dissent law #SupremeCourt @OfficeofUT #SupremeCourtOfIndia
Salve: Unless the court comes to a startling conclusion that the notice pending before the speaker is transferred to Supreme Court under Article 142 or members get disqualified as soon a plea for disqualification is filed #SupremeCourt @OfficeofUT #SupremeCourtOfIndia

Five-judge Constitution bench to hear a batch of petitions filed by rival factions Uddhav Thackeray and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde in relation to the Maharashtra political crisis

#SupremeCourt @OfficeofUT #SupremeCourtOfIndia Image
Sr Adv Harish Salve: on the correctness of Nabam Rebia, this case has been relied on by the petitioner and they said that on the basis of the judgment new speaker should not have decided it. I am not on merits, a judgment they are relying on is the one they are questioning now
Sr Adv Kapil Sibal: working of the 10th schedule has unfortunately worked to advantage political immorality. Nabam Rebia says when notice is issued to speaker seeking his removal that very moment he cannot act as tribunal under 10th schedule #SupremeCourt
