The current wave of COVID-19 pandemic has created havoc in the country with fast rising number of cases.
Many of the learned advocates and staff members had suffered/are suffering from COVID- 19.
This Court had issued notifications dated 21.04.2021 and 22.04.2021 to have effective containment and control over the Corona virus.
Having regard to the regulatory measures taken by the Court on the administrative side, there is a need for this Court to consider the situation on judicial side so far as continuation of interim orders are concerned.
Accordingly, it was considered necessary and appropriate to register this suo moto writ petition.
Having regard to the prevailing situation, it is directed that in all matters wherein interim orders passed by this Court and Courts/Tribunals, which are subordinate to the High Court, are subsisting as on 21.04.2021, such interim orders shall unconditionally be extended till 30.06.2021, unless specifically dealt with by any judicial order to the contrary.
All parties affected by the continuation of the interim orders, will, however, be at liberty to apply for vacating such orders, with due notice to the parties, in whose favour such interim orders have been made.
Registry will take necessary steps for communication of this order to the concerned Courts/Tribunals.
Registry will list this case for motion hearing on 28.06.2021. On that date, the Court will consider continuation or otherwise of this order beyond 30.06.2021.”
