The Delhi High Court will commence physical hearings of matters on a daily basis from 15 March, one year after the hearings went virtual in view of the coronavirus pandemic.

The court may, in exceptional cases, permit any of the parties and or their Counsel to join the proceedings through video conferencing, subject to availability of requisite infrastructure.

The order of the court stated: “All Benches of this Court shall hold physical Courts, on a daily basis, with effect from 15.03.2021 and shall continue to take up the matters as per the existing arrangement of listing.”

The existing hybrid system of hearing the matters in the court will continue up to 12 March.

The court had stopped hearing the matters physically on 23 March 2020.

Last month, the Delhi High Court had issued a revised circular, starting hybrid functioning with both physical and virtual hearings.
