Social media users fail to differentiate between oral remarks & actual orders: SC | India News

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said social media users following court proceedings mostly can’t differentiate between judges’ oral remarks during proceedings and the actual order passed by courts.
Justice DY Chandrachud’s remark came when it was hearing a plea by the Board of Control for Cricket in India seeking to amend its Constitution. The court was making some suggestions while hearing the matter. He said social media users think every time the court says something, that is the judgment, adding that observations made by judges could be corrected by lawyers as well as it is only for dialogues. Solicitor general Tushar Mehta apprised the court of existing rules and proposed amendments. The hearing in the matter will be continued on Wednesday.
BCCI has sought permission to change the rules relating to the ‘cooling off’ period for the president, secretary and other office bearers. The petition also sought a direction for the extension of the tenure of BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah. The petition was filed in 2020.
The tenure of Ganguly as BCCI president and Shah as BCCI secretary is set to expire in September 2022.
Currently, any person who has been an office bearer in BCCI or state cricket body, or any combination, has to undergo a mandatory 3-year “cooling off period” following a maximum six-year term in office.
