In a unanimous decision taken at a recent full court meeting headed by the CJI, the apex court decided to live-stream proceedings of all constitution bench hearings from September 27, four years after the path-breaking announcement by Justice Misra in 2018.

The Supreme Court live-streamed its constitution bench proceedings on Tuesday. The hearing of pleas challenging reservation for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) and the row over control of services between the Centre and the Delhi government were the first regular webcast. Exactly four years ago, on September 27, 2018, the then Chief Justice of India CJI Dipak Misra, heading a bench had delivered the landmark judgement on a live telecast or webcast of important proceedings in matters of constitutional importance, saying sunlight is the best disinfectant. The proceedings can be accessed at webcast.gov.in/scindia/, said an official. A bench headed by Chief Justice Uday Umesh Lalit said the top court will soon have its own platform to live-stream its proceedings instead of having to use YouTube.

Sanjoy Ghose, a practicing lawyer, said, "Historic day for SC proceedings in India. India has beaten the United States where the SC has still not agreed to LIVE streaming of proceedings. Significant beginning for court proceedings in India, where public gets to see history being made. Books are poor substitutes to visual recordings of history being made."
Satvik Varma said, "Momentous day not just for lawyers but every citizen of India. LIVE streaming doesn't expose the court but makes it more accessible to a courtside view of deliberations within. The public can observe the court, law students will benefit too. LIVE streaming of cases will go up a few notches especially when some of the best advocates argue before constitutional benches. LIVE streaming will bring about judicial discipline especially on the time duration front."
