The Supreme Court of India will broadcast its proceedings live on television for the first time on Friday. The decision was made on N V Ramana's retirement day as India's chief justice.
Please be aware that the proceedings of the Hon'ble Chief Justice' Court, or Ceremonial Bench, on August 26, 2022, beginning at 10:30 A.M., would be livestreamed through the NIC' Webcast page on the eve of the Hon'ble Chief Justice of India's retirement.
The Chief Justice of India and his replacement, CJI-designate U U Lalit, share the bench on his retirement day. As the CJI's court is composed of three justices, Justice Hima Kohli will also sit on the bench. The Indian Express was informed by sources that the decision to expand institutional live streaming would be made soon.
Live streaming of cases with "constitutional or national importance before a Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court" was made possible in 2018 thanks to a three-judge Supreme Court bench. "Comprehensive rules for live streaming of Court sessions in the Supreme Court" were created by Attorney General K K Venugopal, who has advocated for live televised court proceedings.
