MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court has extended the interim relief that it has granted in all the cases to April 30, due to pandemic Coronavirus outbreak and subsequent nationwide lockdown. This is the second Covid-19 outbreak-related order by the Bombay High Court.

On Thursday, the court directed to continue all interim orders which are operating and are not already continued by some other courts/authority and ordered that they will remain in force till April 30, subject to liberty to parties to move for vacating such interim order only in extreme urgent basis.

“As the lockdown is now declared till April 14, the normal working of this court at least till then is not possible,” said the four-judge special bench headed by the Chief Justice BP Dharmadhikari. “As the staff is not available, files cannot be made over to the court. As local transport is shut down, lawyers and litigants are finding it difficult to approach the court,” said the bench further. The other judge includes Justice AA Sayed, Justice HH Shinde and Justice KK Tated.

The court had said that the order will be effective on all interim orders passed by High Court’s benches in Mumbai, Aurangabad, Nagpur and Panaji and also all the court and tribunal.

“Considering the prevalent shutdown and other issues, we hope that Government as also municipal authorities and other agencies or instrumentalities shall also be slow in taking any coercive steps so as to drive the citizen to the court of law in the meantime,” the court said in its order.

Earlier, the court had directed all Municipal Commissioners of all the Municipal Corporations in Maharashtra to consider issuing a general directive not to demolish, evict or hold auctions of attached properties for a specified period.

Referring to that order, the court also said that, Orders or decree for eviction, dispossession, demolition already passed by any court/Tribunal/Authority shall also remain in abeyance till then.
