The Supreme Court's three-judge bench, led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) N V Ramana and including Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian issued the order.

In light of a sudden increase in COVID-19 cases across India, the Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association (SCAORA) urged the top court to suspend the limitation time for filing cases/appeals under all general/special laws.

 

SCAORA had asked the court to extend its March 23, 2020 order on the suspension of the statute of limitations until further orders.
