Due to increase in Covid cases everything went virtually or online so as Courts started hearing all the matters virtually from 30th March which led to encounter to so many problems and agreements.
In response to that court decided to hear final hearing Physically as experimental basis but due to second wave this method also collapsed.
In January Delhi high court decided to go physical which resulted in blacklash. To Challenge this plea was filed in apex court which is led by Cji Sharad A Bobde .which resulted in holding cases virtually or hybrid is in favour of safety of people.
Some judges argued that online sessions are better in favour of people safety in this pandemic but according to some judge online session are not able to provide proper justice to people as due to network issue or failure to give fair chance to every lawyer. Even common man are unable to get justice.
Last month also, the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) wrote to CJI NV Ramana to consider the resumption of physical functioning of the Supreme Court in view of the dip in COVID-19 cases.
Hence Judges in favour of this say’s virtual courts are grants flexibility in work and safeguard to people even though some judge says hearing is all about doing eye contact and giving fair chance to everyone for justice so this virtual can stay for sometimes now but cannot be settled or replaced permanently by physical mode.
