Chandigarh, September 14

The Punjab and Haryana HC has given the advocates the option of appearing through virtual mode in the courts nominated for physical hearing as per the weekly roster.

The HC has made it clear request for appearing through physical mode would not be entertained for the courts being held through virtual mode only on the given date.

An order issued on behalf of Chief Justice Ravi Shanker Jha by HC Registrar Vigilance Vikram Aggarwal said a “videoconferencing group” for the purpose of communication would be made for the courts nominated for physical hearing as well.

If a case was listed in “urgent motion cause list” of a court nominated for physical hearing, a counsel may make a request in the “VC group/mobile number” of official concerned of the Bench for hearing the matter virtually. The request could be made on the day preceding the date on which the case was listed. But a “no objection” from all opposite counsels was required. — TNS
