  • Terming the proposal of live streaming of court proceedings as the “need of the hour”, the Supreme Court today agreed with the Centre’s suggestion that the telecast of judicial proceedings can be undertaken and sought suggestions for taking a “holistic” view on the matter. A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, which had asked Attorney General KK Venugopal to assist it, was suggested by the top law officer that live streaming of court proceedings would benefit all, including the litigants and the lawyers.
