Indira Jaising, in support of PIL to make SC live stream important cases, starts online petition

The petition has just under 500 signatures at this time, and states: "I am Indira Jaising, a Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court of India. I have filed a public interest petition in the Supreme Court to live stream and video record cases of national interest that impact each one of us. The Supreme Court has advanced the human rights jurisprudence of this country and heard pleas of citizens on environmental concerns, gender justice issues, and ensured that these rights are protected equally for all. All of us cannot be physically present in New Delhi to hear the arguments of the lawyers, or the concerns of Judges on such issues. Technology will help us bridge the gap and make it possible to access the Supreme Court and virtually enter the court room even when not present."

Senior Advocate Indira Jaising Starts Change.Org Petition For Live Streaming Of Supreme Court Proceedings | Live Law

After petitioning the Supreme Court for live streaming and video recording of cases of “national importance”, Senior Advocate Indira Jaising has now started a change.org Petition with similar demands.

Addressed to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, her Petition says, “The Supreme Court has advanced the human rights jurisprudence of this country and heard pleas of citizens on environmental concerns, gender justice issues, and ensured that these rights are protected equally for all. All of us cannot be physically present in New Delhi to hear the arguments of the lawyers, or the concerns of Judges on such issues. Technology will help us bridge the gap and make it possible to access the Supreme Court and virtually enter the court room even when not present.”

Much like her Petition before the Apex Court, her change.org petition makes reference to the telecast of proceedings by both Houses of the Parliaments and asserts, “This has brought awareness about the functioning of Parliament, all State Assemblies and our elected representatives. The higher judiciary all over the world provides means for viewing their courtroom proceedings, which enhances the transparency in its working. Live streaming of cases of national importance would do the same for the Supreme Court of India.”
