On Wednesday, the Supreme Court verbally said that a hybrid system for case hearings must be in place in all courts.
Currently, the Supreme Court and a few High Courts around the nation operate in a hybrid format, giving advocates and clients the choice of appearing in person or remotely.
According to senior attorney Mukul Rohatgi, the Bombay and Gujarat High Courts no longer provide this service.
The Bench also mentioned during the discussion that the nation’s tribunals should be composed of specialists in the respective professions.
