The Delhi High Court has revived its earlier circular allowing service of all documents, Notices, Summons and Daks to be effected through E-mail, Fax and WhatsApp till April 24.
The Court had directed,
“all documents/ notices/ summons/Daks through physical mode be dispensed with, except where there is a specific order to that effect by the Hon’ble Court, and that such service be instead permitted to be effected through email/fax/whatsapp.”
The Court had further directed that the concerned parties are required to provide necessary E-mail addresses and other details for the purpose.
The procedure of sending documents/summons/Daks through electronic mode will be done by the Despatch Branch/ Process Serving Agency, in coordination with the concerned judicial branches and IT Branch, from their seats, the Court informed in its circular.
The Circular had further stated that the usual mode of physical delivery will resume after the situation becomes normal.
