Delhi High Court and District Courts Cancel Summer Break

The Hon’ble Full Court of Delhi High Court and District Court Judges, in consultation with the Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) has, on April 9, 2020 decided that the High court and the district courts shall remain functional fully and normally during the summer break of June. 

This step has been taken to compensate for the loss of Court working hours due to the 21-day lockdown observed in concern to the Novel Coronavirus.

The High Court currently is taking up 'extremely urgent matters' via video-conferencing to keep up with the requirement of social distancing.

The resolution reads as:

In view of severe hardship faced by the litigants due to the prevailing pandemic of COVID-19 that has impaired the functioning of the courts, it has been unanimously resolved by the full court that to make up for the loss of court working hours and to ensure restoration of normalcy in the functioning of the courts at the earliest, in modification of the resolution of the Full Court dated 16.09.2019, declaring the period of the summer vacation for this court and the courts subordinate thereto shall continue functioning during the entire month of June i.e. 01.06.2020 to 30.06.2020. It is hoped and expected that members of the Bar shall extend full cooperation in making the functioning of the courts meaningful and purposeful during the month of June 2020.”
