Appeal to High CourtCourt Allows Video Recording of Proceedings – High Court of Calcutta

July 19, 20150

It is pertinent to note that recently , in may 2015, UK Supreme Court  has started a special service wherein one can view any time & at any place  , on demand service , all the past hearings of SC which will be in parity with the  court’s existing live streaming services   .

Though , India has no such service till the date however , a recent decision in India has created a step close to video recording of court proceedings .

It started in Honourable High Court of Calcutta, where Justice  ANIRUDDHA BOSE while dealing with the issues  in CA No.342 of 1998 CA No.431 of 2012 CP No.90 of 1983 of  ANGELO BROTHERS LTD.(IN LIQUIDATION) & ORS. , passed a historic order .

As regards prayer of Mr. Khosla for video recording of the proceeding, I have permitted such recording as there was no objection from the learned Advocates appearing for the different parties. But I make it clear that the proceedings being recorded today shall not form part of the official records of this Court as there is no Rule of the Court as yet framed permitting video recording of the proceedings before the Court. The recordings would be for the purpose of assistance of this Court, like noting of submissions of the parties in course of hearing and such recording shall not be made available to any of the parties or outsiders unless otherwise directed by this Court, and this Court shall have the power and authority to make necessary editing of the recorded version, removing any part therefrom which this Court considers it necessary to avoid any scandalous or undesirable or irrelevant matter to remain on record.

 This historic and landmark order will pave a way for  further such requests and /or orders .
