The Supreme Court has recently issued a circular permitting Advocates-on-Record/Parties-in-Person to state their new matters physically.
It stated that on Mondays through Fridays, from 10.30 a.m. to 12.00 p.m., and on Saturdays, from 10.30 a.m. to 11.00 a.m., the concerns may be discussed.
Before the Mentioning Officer, the same can be done via Video Conferencing (VC) mode from 12.15 pm to 2.00 pm Monday through Friday, and from 11.00 am to 11.30 am on Saturdays.
According to the Circular, those who wish to mention matters through VC mode must send their request in the Listing Performa, along with a letter of urgency (as per guidelines laid down in Circular dated 23.01.2019), to firstname.lastname@example.org on working days between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm (Monday to Friday) and between 10.00 am and 11.00 am (Saturday and Sunday). The subject of this request should be "mentioning through VC."
During the same time period, a request for mentioning of IAs in a pending matter or after notice matter can be sent to the aforementioned email ID, and it will be placed before a Competent Authority for oral mentioning via Video Conferencing only, before the Bench of the Presiding Judge having Coram in that matter.
