Carrying the mobile phones inside the Court Room of the Supreme Court of India was prohibited. Journalists had to deposit their mobiles phone with the security personnel. It was very uncomfortable as the security personnel did not issue any receipt of mobile phone.
In a big relief to the Media Persons/Journalists, who have been issued six months passes by Registry, CJI has allowed them to carry mobile phones inside the Court Rooms on Silent mode. The Deputy Registrar ( Public Relations) will endorse suitably on the passes that the person carrying Mobile Phone be allowed inside the Court Room.
