PTI ( FILE PIC )
The Supreme Court today decided to seal the chambers of lawyers in and around its premises taking major safety steps in view of Corona virus pandemic. Only one court would hear extremely urgent matters through virtual means. The apex court said it is also cancelling the proximity entry cards of the lawyers and other staff members from Monday onwards, so that no one is allowed inside the premises.

A bench of Chief Justice S A Bobde and Justices L N Rao and Surya Kant said that only Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave, President of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) can authorize a person to enter the premises for a very urgent reason.


Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre, said the limitations of appeals which are about to expire in coming four-six weeks, should be deemed to have been extended. The CJI said that it would be passing an administrative order by this evening.

The issue of shutting down the apex court's functioning was raised by the SCBA President and the members of the Supreme Court Advocates on Record Association in the wake of the Corona virus outbreak.
