“The doors of justice cannot be closed”, remarked the Supreme Court while it asked the NCLAT, which has suspended the court work, to find out a way for online hearing. The bench comprising of Justice Arun Mishra, S. Abdul Nazeer and Indira Banerjee was hearing a Special Leave Petition in which the petitioner’s counsel submitted that he has filed an appeal against the order of NCLT, Mumbai before the NCLAT, but the NCLAT has closed its functioning as one of its employees is suffering from Covid-19.
