The SC resumed physical hearings on Thursday, nearly seven months after they were suspended due to the second Covid-19 wave that saw several judges and court staff contracting the infection.

The court will hold physical hearings from Tuesday through Thursday every week. Hearings on Mondays and Fridays – the days on which the courts hear fresh cases – will continue in virtual mode.

A decision on moving completely to physical mode will be taken after November 6, when the court reopens after a six-day Diwali recess, as per the advisory. Physical hearing has become a contentious issue, with senior lawyers favouring virtual mode and the younger pros urging SC to revert to physical hearings.

“We are happy to see your faces. It became so lonely,” Justice DY Chadrachud told advocate VK Biju. Senior advocates, including Harish Salve and Mukul Rohatgi, back virtual courts as a way of cutting down on expenses and avoiding crowded court rooms. They can sit in their law offices and appear in any court throughout India.
