After nearly a year, the High Court had resumed complete physical functioning from March 15, making virtual hearings an exception and not the norm.
However, a week into the physical hearings, it once again permitted virtual hearings/hybrid hearings in cases before it.
Earlier this month, the High Court and subordinate Courts once again began hearing cases though completely virtual mode.
