The Bombay High Court on Monday said that interim orders passed by various courts and authorities in Maharashtra and Goa after April 9 pertaining to eviction, demolition and dispossession, which are still in operation, will continue to be kept in abeyance till August 13 in view of the pandemic situation.

Last month, the court had said that the orders will continue to be kept in abeyance till July 9.

The court had on April 16 passed an order that eviction, demolition, and dispossession of properties should not be carried out during the pandemic until further directions and granted parties concerned the liberty to move HC in case of emergency.

A four-judge bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justices AA Sayed, SS Shinde and PB Varale passed the order while hearing a suo motu petition on the extension of protection to those who are unable to access justice due to restricted functioning of courts amid the pandemic.
