New Delhi [India], March 30 (ANI): Chief Justice of India N V Ramana on Wednesday said the Supreme Court will commence physical hearing of cases from April 4.
"Monday onwards we are opening fully, physically. Monday and Friday, we will provide advocates virtual hearing if they ask for such options," said CJI Ramana.

The Supreme Court currently has been holding virtual hearings on Monday and Friday and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the hearings are in physical forms.
On January 2 this year, the top court had decided to shift to the virtual hearings from January 3 in view of the rising cases of Omicron variant.
