The Supreme Court on Friday allowed service of summonses and notices through WhatsApp and telegram along with email and fax in legal proceedings.
However, it clarified that all methods were to be used to prove a valid service of summonses and notices to a party.
This is the first time the Supreme Court had permitted service of summonses and notices in court proceedings through WhatsApp and telegram which instantaneously deliver contents to the recipients.
"Two blue ticks would convey that the receiver has seen the notice," it noted.
The top court also permitted RBI to extend the validity of cheques in view of COVID-19 lockdown.
It will be the discretion of the RBI to issue suitable orders, altering the validity period of a cheque, it said.
