Do we need Virtual Hearings Post Lockdown?

Welcoming the temporary shift to virtual hearings, which is less likely to be continued post Covid? But do we need it? I am of the view that they should be integrated with the physical functioning of courts after reopening. Since the lockdown, there has been no more rushing to courts, jostling with lawyers and wearing gowns. In a matter of two months, all that seems to be in the distant past. The system must remain even if we bring the physical system back. Maybe reserved one day for hearings conducted through video conferencing. Virtual hearings have number of benefits, judges are sitting at homes, may not have access to all law books. One has to be to the point. This is cheaper, better and more integrated system, it is also good for environment, also, lawyers from moffusil towns can appear in court from remote locations. Litigation has become cheaper because lawyers need not to travel.

Lockdown has also emerged result of cleaner Ganga, which could similarly stimulate with a phrase of cleanup judicial system mechanism could follow. What 15 years of Government can’t done the lockdown has done. Ganga has healed itself. Similarly what 10 years of connecting courts by e-system, by different committees and paperwork could not do, has been done in eight weeks because necessity is the mother of invention.

Aishwarya Says:

I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years. I will be talking to and interviewing around 1 lakh people in the coming 2021 and publish their interview regarding their opinion on glamourising Over Work.
