CJI Chandrachud lays down directions to streamline listing of fresh cases in Supreme Court

CJI Chandrachud also said that if somebody has any urgency, the matter can be mentioned before him.

To streamline the listing of cases before the Supreme Court of India, Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud issued directions to the registrar (listing) for automatic listing of fresh cases.

On his second working day after being sworn-in as the CJI, Chandrachud told lawyers that he passed certain directions for fresh filing of cases. The listing of cases will be done in a way such that matters which are registered this week will be heard either on Monday or Friday of the next week.

"I have given instructions to the registrar (listing)... All matters registered on Saturdays, Monday, Tuesday will be listed on next Monday and matters registered on Thursday and Friday will be listed next Friday. This way, there will be automatic listing of cases," said the CJI.

The directions issued by Chandrachud were put into effect during his predecessor U U Lalit's tenure as the Chief Justice of India.

CJI Chandrachud also said that if somebody has any urgency, the matter can be mentioned before him.

The CJI informed the lawyers about the new system of filing cases when he was hearing the mentioning of cases on Thursday morning.

Former CJI UU Lalit had also introduced a host of sweeping changes in the listing of cases. Even before taking charge as the 49th CJI, Lalit had promised that the process of listing cases would become simpler and more transparent and assured a clear-cut regime for mentioning of urgent cases and listing of important constitutional cases before the Constitution benches.

CJI Lalit brought in a change in the order of hearing cases on non-miscellaneous days, where regular hearing cases were heard in the first half of the day. Earlier, the court used to take up regular cases after hearing miscellaneous cases.
