Supreme Court allows CCTV cameras in district courts, without audio

After series of discussion, a two-judge bench of the Supreme Court ordered High Courts across India to ensure that CCTV cameras are installed at least in two districts courts under their jurisdiction but without audio recording. According to report, The video recording facilities will initially be installed in at least two districts of each state and union territory. The apex court has set a time frame of three months to complete the work of installing the cameras. Notably, the video recordings will not be accompanied by corresponding audio nor will they be available to general public under the Right To Information Act. The videos will only be released to the public under the express directives of the respective High Courts. According to the report, since August 2013, union law ministers have written three times to respective chief justices of India, urging the court to consider allowing video and audio recordings of judicial proceedings. The Supreme Court also indicated that it would take the matter forward after examining how its current directive to High Courts gets implemented.
