Cuttack: As the entire state’s situation is reeling under the Covid-19 scare, the Orissa High Court on Friday decided to function only through video conferencing between January 10 and February 4.
In view of increase in Covid-19 cases in the state, all benches of the court will work via online mode, said the HC today.
The offices of the High Court will function with 50% strength of employees (except officers in the rank of Assistant Registrar and above who shall attend office daily) during this period under the instructions of the concerned officer.
The roster for 50% attendance of employees will be prepared by the Superintendents in such a manner that the employees are required to attend office on alternate days and they will not leave the headquarters during the above period.
“Except the Officers and staff of the Court, there shall be restrictions for others over entry into the High Court campus. However, in a case where there is specific direction of any Bench for removal of defects, the Advocate concerned may come to the High Court for the limited purpose of removal of defects with prior intimation to Deputy Registrar (Judicial),” read an order of the High Court.
