The government had mooted the proposal in August in an advisory council meeting of the law ministry, held in Delhi. Starting with all 15,000 subordinate courts as a pilot project, it was proposed to move it up to all levels, to increase transparency.

The Delhi High Court Bar Association had also vowed to meet the law ministry at the end of the court’s summer vacations, with the proposal to initiate audio video recording of court proceedings.

Allowing litigants and lawyers to independently record court proceedings has also been a long-running cause pushed by Delhi advocate Deepak Khosla.

AIBA chairman Adish C Aggarwala said: “It is inappropriate and contemptuous to record and telecast court proceedings. The telecast of Fali Nariman’s arguments in Jayalalithaa bail matter in the Supreme Court by Thanthi Television on October 18 is contemptuous and the Supreme Court of India should take stern action of contempt of court against all concerned who are responsible for its recording and telecast.”
