In the wake of rising cases of the Wuhan Virus (Novel Coronavirus) the Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachud, permitted work from home (WFH) to advocates.
On the 5th of April, Wednesday, CJI D.Y. Chandrachud said, “Newspaper reports show that Covid cases are on the rise and if lawyers want to appear virtually before the court they can and can also work in hybrid mode.”
CJI’s decision comes on a day when India reported over 4,000 new Covid-19 cases, the highest single day jump since September 2022.
Earlier last year, owing to the “sudden upsurge of COVID cases”, the Supreme Court decided to go online, allowing virtual court hearings. A circular issued by the court had directed judges to hear cases from their residential offices.
