KOLKATA: The Calcutta High Court will hear “extremely urgent matters” through video conferencing.
Registrar general Rai Chattopadhyay issued the notification on Saturday, since lawyers and litigants are at the moment unable to attend the court because of the countrywide lockdown.
Chief Justice TBN Radhakrishnan has issued elaborate instructions over filing of e-petitions. Under the new arrangement, the advocate-on-record is required to file a scanned copy of the petition along with documents and send it to [email protected]. The Chief Justice had clarified that the petition must contain the case details, the bench details and a separate paragraph giving consent to the hearing of the case in the video conferencing mode.
For the purpose of video conferencing, the petitioner has to submit his skype contact details. The petitioner will receive the details of the time of hearing on his mobile phone once the court admits the petition.
