A three-judge bench of the Supreme Court of India comprising the Chief Justice Dipak Misra, as well as Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud favoured the cause of live-streaming of the apex court’s proceedings, with the plea filed by the petitioner-in-person, Senior Advocate Indira Jaising. The bench noted such measures as being “the need the hour” in lieu of transparency, and insisted on prompt addressal of the same.

The writ petition filed in Public Interest under Article 32 in January by Indira Jaising said,

“The Petitioner submits that a cardinal principle of law is that justice is not only to be done in public but also should be seen to be done and the best possible manner to achieve this goal is to live stream the proceedings so that arguments of all Counsels are heard and recorded, and the concerns of the judges as reflected in the interaction between the Counsels and the Court, are recorded accurately and without distortions.”
