[BREAKING] Supreme Court agrees to extends limitation period to file cases across the country in view of COVID-19

On March 23, 2020, the Supreme Court had directed the suspension of the limitation period running under all general and special laws, with effect from March 15, 2020, in view of the difficulties faced by the litigants in approaching the courts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thereafter, the said order was extended from time to time.

However, on March 8, 2021, the Court had recalled that order after a dip in COVID cases.

But the devastating second wave had hit and SCAORA had then approached the Supreme Court seeking suspension of limitation periods in view of the surge.

The Supreme Court had then on April 27, 2021 ordered that the limitation period be extended.

However, this extension also came to an end on October 2, 2021 after the COVID cases dipped.

The SCAORA moved the top court again last week to revive the March 2020 order in view of surge in COVID cases and impending third wave.
