8 lakh tuned into India’s first SC live streaming proceedings

In a landmark moment in the history of the Indian judiciary, the Supreme Court on Tuesday live-streamed on YouTube its proceedings for the public to watch.
The proceedings were watched by more than eight lakh viewers. This step will go a long way in overcoming the barriers of distance and will provide citizens from every nook and corner of the country opportunity to watch the Supreme Court proceedings, said a statement issued by the Supreme Court.
It further stated that this is a humble beginning and the “attempts will now be made to live-stream proceedings in all important matters” until live-streaming of proceedings becomes the order of the day.
“Three Constitution Benches in Court nos. 1, 2 and 3 of the Supreme Court of India were sitting today simultaneously and the proceedings in these three Courts were being live streamed through YouTube and other T.V. Channels. Statistics show that more than eight lakh viewers watched the proceedings before the three Constitution Benches,” said the Supreme Court.
The decision to live stream the proceedings of the Constitution benches was taken by the Full Court on 20 September 2022 and soon thereafter trial runs were undertaken by the Registry.
The technical support teams ensured that the live streaming was without any obstruction or difficulty and was completely seamless, the statement added.
