The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday extended the terms of all interim orders passed by it or Subordinate Courts until December 1, 2020 in view of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
The order has been passed by a bench of Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari and Justice Piyush Agrawal. The divisional bench noted that, “The position on account of COVID-19 Pandemic has not improved entirely.”
The Bench Said,
“The position on account of COVID-19 Pandemic has not improved entirely, therefore, this Court is of the opinion that the direction given by this Court on 19.08.2020 to extend the effect of the earlier order till 31.10.2020 needs to be extended and, accordingly, the order quoted above in reference to the extension of the interim order and even for the limitation, as given therein, is made operational and effective till 01.12.2020.”
Previously, the High Court had extended all interim orders till October 31. Now it has been extended to December 1, 2020.
