78% : Latest updates Providing the statistics, the SCI sources said, " Information available on Court and other Judicial websites would indicate that nations hit by the Covid-19 pandemic like the USA, UK, EU, France, Italy, Germany, China, Canada, Australia, Singapore etc, are carrying out administration of Justice by mostly relying on Virtual Court methodologies and online case-management."
60% : During the lockdown period in India from March 25 till May 1, the SC held 22 hearing days and set up 116 benches, 43 of them for hearing main matters and 73 benches for deciding review petitions.
56% : Top courts of all major countries in the grip of Covid-19 pandemic adopted virtual hearing mode to decide cases during lockdown but the Supreme Court of India (SCI) has emerged the busiest disposing 347 cases and delivering 57 judgments, which is 14 times more than the number of cases decided by US Supreme Court.
56% : SCI disposal statistics is between March 25 and May 1, where as the data available about disposal of cases for Supreme Courts of other major countries are between mid-February to end of April.
50% : They said even during normal times, open court did not translate to throwing SC open to general public as access was restricted and regulated.
30% : Most Judges were of the view that when 'open court' hearing cannot be claimed as a right, resorting to physical hearing in open court "would be seen in complete violation of universal social distancing norms being adopted globally, by communities and nations.
30% : Such norms are being adopted even at the cost of sacrificing cultural, religious and ethnic traditions, practices and customs."
26% : The SC disposed of 49 special leave petitions, 92 writ petitions including PILs and 138 review petitions.
18% : Given the mandate of the Constitution under Article 145(4), which says "No judgment shall be delivered by the Supreme Court save in Open Court...", TOI spoke to a crossection of judges, who were of the opinion that "virtual court system cannot be said to be negating the principles of fairness that are sacrosanct to administration of justice nor is it failing to adhere to requirements of an 'Open Court' system."
5% : Lockdown 3.0:
