Whether any further Excluded Period will be declared by SC

At the outburst of Covid-19 and followed by a lockdown, in a suo motu petition, the Supreme Court of India while exercising its power under Article 142 passed an order for suspension of limitation period for one year commencing from 15th March,2020.

In the second wave of Covid-19, as acclaimed, the situation is becoming worser day by day, in such a scenario whether another order for an exclusion period will be on card especially when Courts are again back to online hearings and lockdowns and/or curfews in some places are already in place.

It is also reported in public domain that SC judges to function from home as over 50% staff test Covid positive and even 6 SC judges have been tested positive. Of late, news about positive report of judges across jurisdictional High Courts are also coming from time to time.

Under these circumstances, only time will reveal as to  we are heading towards another exclusion period or otherwise.

The last order of the SC whereby excluded period was laid down can be accessed on
