In view of the “exponential rise” in coronavirus cases, the Bombay High Court decided on Monday to limit the working hours of its principal bench from 12 pm to 3 pm every day until January 28.

The lower and subordinate courts are also taking up urgent matters and matters of bail, remand, etc. in two shifts of two hours each.
