Supreme Court: Chief Justice DY Chandrachud has made an important comment on repeatedly extending the date of hearing in the court. Appealing to lawyers not to seek adjournment in new cases, the CJI said he did not want the Supreme Court to become a date-by-date court. He revealed that lawyers sought adjournment in 3,688 cases in the last two months, while most of these cases were mentioned for urgent hearing.

CJI said – Court cannot be formed on date after date

The bench headed by the CJI also includes Justice JB Pardiwala and Justice Manoj Mishra. He said that people lose their trust by forming courts day after day. So many cases being asked to be postponed do not create a good image of this court. DY Chandrachud stressed that the time between filing of a case in the Supreme Court and its listing before a bench has been reduced significantly and all new cases are filed within a week. Get listed.

2,361 cases mentioned for hearing

Fresh cases are listed and heard on Monday and Friday every week. The CJI said that at least 2,361 cases had been mentioned by lawyers seeking early hearing, but when they came up before the respective benches, most of them were requested to be deferred. The Chief Justice said that an average of 154 stay letters were given every day in these two days since September. Also, he said that I request the members of the Bar not to seek adjournment unless it is really necessary.
