Snehal Upadhyay-

The High Court of Chhattisgarh has decided that as per the supervisory jurisdiction of the High Court it will plan for doing live streaming of the Court proceedings for all the Courts in the State.

The Registrar General of the High Court on June 26th notified this development.

This decision was taken in accordance with the instructions given by the E-committee of the Supreme Court which is headed by Justice DY Chandrachud.

In April 2021, Justice DY Chandrachud stated that the E- committee of the Supreme Court was working and finalizing the rules for conducting live streaming for Court proceedings.

In the recent judgment in the case of the Election Commission of India v. MR Vijayabhskar, an observation for the necessity of having live streaming was made by Justice DY Chandrachud.

“Unless live-streaming and archival of court proceedings sees the light of the day the absence of records of oral proceedings would continue to bedevil the system”, observed by Justice DY Chandrachud.
