Virtual Court System is Undesirable in SC, Delhi HC Next Door: SC

The Supreme Court observed that a contract is void if prohibited by a statute under a penalty, even without express declaration that the contract is void

On Tuesday the supreme court stated that it has become very difficult to continue with proceedings in the virtual court in a suitable manner. The supreme court directed the Secretary General to look in the matter of unsatisfactory working of virtual hearing at the Apex court.

A three bench of judges Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Harishikesh Roy and Dinesh Maheswari noted with being vexatious over failing connection of virtual court system. Supreme court also added, at the initiation our anger over inability of virtual court system is satisfactorily in the supreme court but no such issues were found in Delhi High Court.

The Supreme Court uses Vidyo application for the hearing purposes and the Delhi High Court which is near to the Supreme Court uses Cisco Webex to conduct virtual court hearings. The order states that even when there is a single person arguing, there is a disturbance of voice and it becomes difficult to understand the proceedings. 

The Supreme court is trying to overcome the issues of disconnection, resonance of voice, even after when a single person is arguing. The disturbance of voice is the resonance of our own voices, said the Supreme court, and this made virtual proceedings difficult to conduct.

‘Law is not law if it violates the principles of eternal Justice’ very beautifully penned down by Lydia Maria Child and I strongly believe, if the law is not made for the goods of people then at least it should not violate the essence of the principle of law that is “JUSTICE”. Law is made to keep each section of society on an equal platform and being a member of the law fraternity, I will try to contribute to the welfare of society.
