The physical hearing can start in the Supreme Court within a week. On Wednesday, the top court has indicated this. The impact of the Kovid-19 epidemic was also on the Supreme Court. Virtually hearing is being held in the court since the month of March last year. Now it is expected that this arrangement will end soon. A bench headed by Chief Justice NV Ramana said that the physical hearing in the court may start in the next 10 days. This bench also included Justices Suryakant and Aniruddha Bose. The judges said this during the hearing of a petition against a decision of the Bombay High Court. The matter was related to an order issued by the Telecom Regulatory Authority regarding tariff.

During the virtual hearing on the petition, this important bench said that we are unable to see or hear the arguments being made by the lawyers in the matter. We can do physical hearing after a week or after 10 days. Virtually proceedings are going on in the court since the month of March last year. This was happening due to the outbreak of Corona pandemic. However, many lawyers have demanded that the physical hearing should be started.

In the month of July this year, the Supreme Court Bar Association wrote a letter to the CJI. Through this letter, the demand for a physical hearing was raised in the court. It was said in the letter that the situation created by Kovid-19 has now become almost normal in the country. Let us tell you that before this, the Supreme Court has expressed displeasure over the impact on its efficiency due to the virtual court system. In January this year, the court had said that due to this, there are many difficulties in conducting the proceedings in a proper manner.
