The bench of Chief Justice Abhay Srinivas Oka and Justice Nataraj Rangaswamy Court observed that, “Prima facie we are of the view that both orders of June 15 and June 27, encroached upon the Fundamental Right conferred by Article 21 and 21A of the Constitution of India”. The bench passed an interim order staying the government orders issued on June 15 and June 27 to the extent they imposed ban/embargo on conduct of online classes by the schools from LKG to Class X.
