A department-related standing committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice headed by Bhupender Yadav, a member of the Rajya Sabha (RS) and the national general secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on Friday suggested that virtual court proceedings should be allowed to continue beyond the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic as well.

The panel said virtual proceedings can be extended permanently to various appellate tribunals such as Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT), Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB), and National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) etc located across the country, which do not require personal appearances of the parties and advocates.

In an interview to HT, Yadav spoke about the need for virtual courts and what interventions are needed on the ground to make them work. Edited excerpts:

Are virtual courts here to stay?

As a virtual start approaches, some St. Louis area schools face laptop backlogs | Education

Now some local districts are coming up short.

Jennings plans to have most students do all classes remotely. Roughly a third — generally younger students and those with special needs, said Superintendent Art McCoy — will learn partially in-person, on alternating days.

And Jennings has enough devices for grades one to 12, McCoy said. But for preschoolers and kindergartners, the district is aiming to provide touchscreen devices. McCoy said a touchscreen device is preferable for a younger child, because it is easier than using a computer mouse.

About two months ago, the district paid for 175 touchscreen Chromebooks, McCoy said. But he doesn’t expect they’ll arrive by Aug. 24, when school starts.

McCoy said he believes vendors have had trouble keeping up with the volume.

He said he expects the shipment to
