Justice D.Y. Chandrachud on Monday has said that a new platform for online hearings may come into force in very less time in the Apex Court.
Senior Counsel Kapil Sibal, who was also appearing in the matter, complained about the disruptive nature of the hearings in Vidyo Connect platforms, while when Senior Advocate Ranjit Kumar, arguing before a bench headed by Justice Chandrachud, was abruptly disconnected which awfully resulted in disruption of smooth proceeding.
J. Chandrachud stated, “Let me tell you that tenders had been floated to bring on board a private party, a competent platform to take over this entire effort from us. We are outsourcing it, but being a public body, we have to follow tender requirements.”
