Due to rising number of Covid-19 cases, the Supreme Court has decided to close physical hearings for 2 weeks. Virtual hearings will take place in place of physical hearings. This is due to the rising stresss and tensions of Omicron infections.
After 2 weeks, the situation will be reviewed again & further decisions will be taken and announced. SC issued a circular in which it states, "It is hereby notified for the information of the members of the bar, party-in-person and all concerned that keeping in view the rising number of cases of Omicron variant, the competetent authority has been pleased to direct that modified Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) notified on October 7, 2021, for physical hearing (hybrid mode) will remain suspended for the present, and all the hearings before the courts for two weeks from and with effect from January 3, shall be through virtual mode only". SC registrar Chirag Bhanu Singh & BLN Acharya, the Bar Association, said that "the petitioner in person & all other parties had been informed about the decision."
Virtual hearings of the court were organized in March 2020. Earlier, SC issued a circular in which it announced that physical hearings would be held on 2 days a week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The hybrid hearing was fixed for Thursday. The virtual hearing days were fixed for Monday and Friday.
Meanwhile, Delhi on Sunday reported 3,194 new Covid-19 cases & 1 death, the number of active cases in the city rose to 8,397. So, the apex court of India reverted its decision to virtual hearings. CM Kejriwal said that "Covid-19 cases are increasing rapidly in Delhi, but there is no need to panic. All cases are mild and asymptomatic (without symptoms)".
