The Registry of Kerala High Court has in its 11 March notification clarified that there is no such proposal either to close the courts or to advance the summer vacation, in light of the recent Coronavirus scare.
However, the notification has further directed all the Principal District and Sessions Judges to not insist on the personal appearance of parties unless the same is essential for the enforcement of High Court orders. It has also advised not to hold Mediations and Lok Adalats during the period of alert, except for compliance of judicial directions.
“Regular functioning of the coons should be continued. Presence of the parties shall not be insisted unless essential for the enforcement of orders of the High Court or other superior courts,” stated the official memorandum of Kerala High Court.
