The Supreme Court on Friday sought the assistance of attorney general K.K. Venugopal on a plea seeking live streaming of cases of constitutional and national importance which could have an impact on the public.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra also sought the centre’s response on the issue.

The apex court’s decision to seek Venugopal’s opinion indicates that it is open to the idea of live-streaming important cases to let people know how they are adjudicated.

“Constitutional matters are those that affect every person and it is their right to know how they are adjudicated upon. It is a step forward towards transparency and is going to instil public confidence in the judiciary,” said Rajiv Khanna, former dean of the Faculty of Law, Delhi University, who is currently the director of the Faculty of Law at SGT University, Gurugram.
