The Supreme Court has stated that it would call back the Suo motu order of April 27, 2021, of the limitation period for filing of cases, which had expanded from March 14, 2021. The Court said that the Suo motu extension of the limitation period would be withdrawn with effect from October 1, 2021. It was also stated that a limitation period of 90 days would be given with effect from October 1 and would list the terms and conditions for the same.
The Attorney General accepted the proposal and recommended restoring the order of March 8, 2021. The Supreme Court moved an order on March 23, 2020, stating that the period of limitation in all such matters, irrespective of the limitation given under the general law or Special Laws, if is condonable or not, would extend w.e.f. March 15 2020, till further orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thus, seeing that the country is coming back to normalcy, the extension of limitation was brought to an end by order dated March 8, 2021. But, considering the surge of COVID cases during the second wave, the Supreme Court on April 27 restored the first order (passed on March 23, 2020) and extended the limitation period with effect from March 14, 2021, until further directions.
