The decision to put the duly court on the advice of doctors only: CJI Bobde


CJI SA SA Bobde said on Wednesday that he would take a final decision to duly start the court only after consulting doctors due to corona infection. He said, we also want the physical court to start because we are used to it.

The Chief Justice said that without the opinion of medical experts, we cannot start a physical court. We cannot start it at the behest of lawyers. The Chief Justice made these remarks while refusing to hear the petition challenging the decision of starting a physical court in the Delhi High Court and subordinate courts.

The Chief Justice told senior counsel Kapil Sibal appearing on behalf of the four lawyers challenging the notification of the Delhi High Court that he could approach the High Court for this. The bench said that they have full faith in the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court.

Earlier on Wednesday, a five-member constitution bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan, hearing the matter related to Maratha reservation, said that the apex court will decide to start a physical court in two weeks.
