Social Justice Bench in Supreme Court

Social Justice Bench is back in Supreme Court; Ten Miscellaneous cases will be heard on Regular days

Justice JS Khehar Has introduced some important changes in the apex court.

Non-miscellaneous days (Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays) will now have  ten miscellaneous cases listed for hearing.

As Par circular published on Supreme Court website today,

“Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, which were originally non-miscellaneous days, in addition to Regular Hearing matters, ten after Notice short matters including Fresh Matters will be listed.”

The circular states that an Advance List of Fresh Matters would be listed on Monday and Friday be uploaded on the Supreme Court Website on every Tuesday and Friday.

The notice also sets out the schedule for uploading the lists. It mentions that an Advance List of matters including Fresh Matters will now be listed on Wednesday and Thursday and that Final List for Tuesday shall be uploaded on every Saturday.

The notice will come into effect from next week.

Besides the above, another important development is the re-introduction of Social Justice Bench. The CJI said in court today that the Bench would sit on Fridays at 2 pm.

The Social Justice Bench was first introduced by Chief Justice HL Dattu in the year 2014.

But was discontinued by Justice TS Thakur when he took over from Justice Dattu.
