District and Session Judge Udaipur, Ravindra Kumar Maheshwari, in his address to Udaipur media today, updated on the action being taken within the Udaipur Courts.
As per the instructions of the honourable High Court, the next three weeks will be a state of controlled quarantine for activities within the courts in Rajasthan. As per the High Court instructions there will be NO HEARING for the scheduled cases during the next three weeks, beginning tomorrow.
The Hon'ble Justice Ravindra Kumar, in today press conference, quoted the presence of multiple people from all parties to each case, causes a confluence of people within the premises to be a major reason for this decision. He further said that as per the directives, the hearings over the next three weeks will include cases related to Stay Orders, Bail, and other similar highly essential categories. No cases apart from these will be heard. In such essential cases, the absence of people from either side will not result in any unfavorable decision.
He also said that IF there comes an instance where the presence of either party is deemed necessary and unavoidable, the Lawyers will personally call them to Court.
In the other administratie and operational areas, the Hon'ble Justice Ravindra informed that the canteen within the court premises will be shut down for the next three weeks. Further, entry to the Court premises will be only through the main gate facing the Court Chauraha. This will mitigate the risk of any possible infections.

Hon'ble District and Session Judge also informed that prisoners are brought to the court on a daily basis for their hearing. Relatives and friends of the prisoners also reach the Court to meet them. This increases the people count in the Court premises. For the lockdown period of three weeks, prisoners will thus not be brought to the Court for hearings. Their hearings will take place through Video Conferencing.
