The Supreme Court has asked the Registrar General of the Patna High Court to verify an “inordinate delay” of 733 days in uploading a judgment on the high court website.

A Bench led by Justice S.K. Kaul found the judgment was pronounced on January 24, 2018. It was however uploaded on the website on May 1, 2019.

“We call upon the Registrar General of the Patna High Court to submit the report to us whether the facts are correct and the reasons for the same,” the Bench ordered.

The case was listed on October 28.
