The Supreme Court Tuesday said the issue related to the implementation of its 2018 verdict allowing live streaming of court proceedings of cases of constitutional and national importance has to be dealt with by the Chief Justice of India on the administrative side, reported PTI.
While refusing to pass any judicial order on the issue, a three-judge bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said it would be appropriate for the CJI to deal with the issue on the administrative side.
Additional Solicitor General Madhavi Divan, appearing for the Secretary General of the apex court, informed the bench that the process of implementing the 2018 verdict has already started.
Attorney General K K Venugopal told the bench, also comprising Justices Vineet Saran and M R Shah, that the Secretary General has started the process of installing infrastructure for live streaming. “There cannot be any command on the administrative side the Supreme Court. The CJI has to take a call on the administrative side on this issue,” the bench said, adding, “can we issue a command to the parliament to frame this or that law? Let the matter be examined on the administrative side by the CJI”.
