SC rejects government proposal to record court proceedings for now

The Supreme Court’s e-committee has rejected the government’s proposal to start recording court proceedings stating that it was not acceptable at present, reported the Times of India, quoting sources, though it did not report further details on the reason.

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.
