Pragmatic Scenario

The Supreme Court of India decided to hear important cases from the respective chambers of judges for the first time of its kind, the Digital Hearing. It happens when a coronavirus outbreak leads to a lockdown in the region. Except for certain significant cases, all trials will likely to be delayed by the Supreme Court as the number of coronavirus cases in the country increases.Video-conferences can be used to hear proceedings in urgent situations.
