SC: Order passed in open court later changed in Judges Chamber

SC: Order passed in open court later changed in Judges Chamber
Supreme Court objected to the rare yet unusual practice of judges dictating an order in open court and later changing it in their chamber behind the back of litigating parties and said such an act generated "unhealthy suspicion" in the minds of litigants.

"An order dictated in court and later changed in chamber is bound to generate unhealthy suspicion in the mind of the litigant on whom the change is adverse. This should never, never happen," a bench of Justices Aftab Alam and Ranjana P Desai said.
