Constitutional matters heard by CJI can be live streamed: Centre to SC


The Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that video recording and live streaming of judicial proceedings can be undertaken on a trial basis in constitutional matters being heard by the Chief Justice of India’s court.

A bench, headed by CJI Dipak Misra, was told by Attorney General KK Venugopal, whose assistance has been sought by the court in the matter, that live streaming can be undertaken on an experimental basis for one-three months to ascertain how it functions technologically.

He said, the functioning of the pilot project can be later analysed and made more efficient.

The bench asked all the parties, including senior advocate Indira Jaising, who had filed a PIL in her personal capacity, to give suggestions to the Attorney General.

It said, Mr Venugopal will collate and compile the suggestions and submit them to the court which will later approve them.

The bench has fixed the matter for further hearing on the 30th of this month.
