Shreya 7 May 2020

That vide circular dated April 22, 2020, the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi laid down the procedure for getting a case listed (for both pending and fresh cases) before it. Further, the High Court, vide circular dated April 26, 2020 expanded the ambit of matters which are eligible for a listing. This inculded matters arising out of The Protection of Women from Domestic Protection Act, 2005, matrimonial matters, eviction matters, ex-parte matters, all criminal Appeals/Revisions/Petitions in which convict is in custody, quashing of criminal case based on settlement through mediation, petitions under Section 9 (Injunction/Interim Relief) and Section 34 (objections to an award) of The Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996. Prior to the circular, the Delhi HC would only hear extremely urgent matters.
