New Delhi, Oct 12: The Supreme Court will work with its full strength from October 12 as its 12 Benches with about 30 judges would assemble through videoconferencing daily.

According to the Supreme Court's website, 10 Benches of two to three judges and two single judge Benches will sit daily from October 12 to hear cases.

It is reportedly said that the increased strength would double the output of the Supreme Court, which has decided not to start physical hearings yet due to the COVID-19 situation in the country.
