Supreme Court demands Explanation for Delay in Uploading Order on the Website [READ ORDER]

The apex court bench comprising of Justice S. K. Kaul and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari called upon the Registrar General of Patna High Court asking for a report and the truthfulness of the fact that uploading of a judgment dated January 24th, 2018 was done on May 1st, 2019 and if the fact stands true the apex court asked the reasons for the delay in uploading of the impugned judgment, a delay of 733 days was noted by the apex court. 

The Supreme Court was considering a Special Leave Petition (SLP) moved by the state of Bihar against the decision of Chief Justice led Patna High Court bench dated January 24th, 2018 in a writ appeal.

The apex court further noted and said “There is an inordinate delay of 733 days as stated by the learned counsel (not 333 days as set out in the application and the official report). This aspect be verified by the Registry. We find from the averments made in paragraph 4 of the application that the impugned judgment was pronounced on 24th January 2018 but was uploaded on the website on 1st May 2019”.

The court ordered that “We call upon the Registrar General of the Patna High Court to submit the report to us whether the aforesaid facts are correct and the reasons for the same. List on 28th October 2020. A copy of the order be forthwith forwarded to the Registrar General, Patna High Court”.

Before on January 28th, 2018 the Patna High Court dismissed an appeal filed by the state government which challenged the single bench judge decision related to the quashing of a government’s order which ended the engagement of one Raj Kumar Yadav as chowkidar and also the bench had directed the regularization of the petitioner. The matter ultimately reached the apex court and that’s when the court noticed the delay in uploading of judgment.
