SC directions on Live Streaming: Read here

The Supreme Court bench of CJI Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud while allowing live streaming of court proceedings, also passed several specific directions that they said will need to be kept in mind before framing the guidelines on live streaming.

These are as follows:

  1. Only a particular category of cases or cases of constitutional and national importance being argued for final hearing before the apex court’s Constitution Bench be live streamed as a pilot project, only after written permission of the concerned Court is received.
  2. Prior consent of all the parties will be required for the concerned proceedings. But, in case there is no unanimity between the parties, the concerned Court can take the appropriate decision in the matter for live streaming of the court proceedings.
  3. The concerned court would retain its power to annul the permission at any stage of the proceedings on its own or in case an application is filed by any party associated with the proceeding, if the situation so warrants.
  4. There ought to be a reasonable time-delay between the live court proceedings and the broadcast, so as to ensure that any information which needs not to be shown, as directed by the Court, can be edited from being broadcast.

The SC Bench then said that “till the time a full-fledged module and mechanism for live streaming of the court proceedings of the top court over the “internet” is evolved, it would be open to explore the possibility of implementation of Phase-I of live streaming in designated areas within the confines of this Court via “intranet” by use of allocated passwords, as a pilot project.”
