Orissa HC decides to work on summer vacations

Staff Writer @Blink

Bhubaneswar, April 29: The Orissa High Court in Cuttack has now decided to work even during the upcoming summer vacations to compensate for the losses of hearing done due to the global health disaster of COVID 19.

The recently joined Chief Justice of the HC Mohammad Rafiq has decided that the same should also be followed by the subordinate court in the state in the light of piling up of judicial cases and the inability of the judges to smoothly run the courts during the lockdown curbs.

A notification issued by the Registrar (Judicial) said, “In view of the exigencies caused by Covid-19 and declaration of lockdown in the State, the Court after due consultation with the Advocate General and the President, Vice President and the Secretary of Orissa High Court Bar Association, has been pleased to suspend the ensuing summer vacation, 2020, of the Orissa High Court, if the lockdown is not extended beyond May 3,”

The functioning of the HC has been badly hit as they judges are not conducting some hearing through video conferencing while subordinate courts are functioning for an hour.

We are a bunch of like-minded people from the media who came forward to build a niche where important news affecting the people at large could be covered independently. This website has been envisioned to be a one stop centre for stories on different facets of the society which should ideally get space in the media but due to several reasons the mainstream media do not give them ample space. This website is trying to build that void. We are trying to report from the important developments from the eastern India with special focus on Odisha, West Bengal and the North East. This website was founded by some senior, mid and new budding journalists to cater to the needs of consumers of digital media which is unbiased, non dependent on government ads for survival and dare to report on the issues which should get ample space in the media and spark debate and discussions in the society. We have our representatives in New Delhi, Odisha, West Bengal, Chattisgarh and North East to cater to the needs of people from their region which are otherwise shunned by the national media. We have our head office at Bhubaneswar in Odisha
