KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) has ruled that the lockdown period imposed to control the coronavirus pandemic should be declared a ‘zero period’.
With the decision, the date of presence will be 30 more days once the lockdown is lifted.
A full bench of 19 justices including the Chief Justice sat for clearance of legal hurdles on the issues of limitation to file case during the pandemic.
The bench cleared the obstacle as the difficult situation was witnessed over the limitation in the filing of a case, notice, and handing overdue date and date of presence owing to the recent government order on lockdown.
