New Delhi: Owing to the significant drop in coronavirus cases across the country, Vikas Singh, Supreme Court Bar Association President requested the Chief Justice of India (CJI) to revert to physical hearings. At present, the court is taking up the matter in a hybrid mode, with physical hearings twice a week and the rest online.

“I am happy that physical hearings have started. I request that full physical hearings be resumed in the Supreme Court. Omicron is like viral fever and people get better soon. It’s much milder,” India Today quoted Singh as saying.
