The Supreme Court of India. (PTI Photo/File)The Supreme Court in a full court held on Tuesday (September 20) decided to live stream its proceedings in crucial Constitution Bench cases that will be heard from September 27. The decision comes nearly four years after a plea was made in the interest of transparency.

History of the case

On August 26, on the day of former Chief Justice of India (CJI) N V Ramana’s retirement, the Supreme Court streamed its proceedings live. But the first steps towards the decision were taken in 2018, when a three-judge Bench comprising then CJI Dipak Misra, Justice A M Khanwilkar, and Justice D Y Chandrachud agreed to hear a public interest litigation seeking live streaming of judicial proceedings on matters of constitutional and national importance.

The petitioners, who cited the principle of open access to justice, included Senior Advocate Indira Jaising. In March 2018, the court issued notice to the Attorney General of India K K Venugopal, seeking his views on the issue.
