The bench of Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice Hima Kohli, Justice MR Shah, Justice Krishna Murari and Justice PS Narasimha told this in open court on Wednesday while listing the case for hearing on September 27.

Completely green bench means there would be no physical papers, documents, or pleading used by the bench. Justice DY Chandrachud observed, "This will be a complete green bench and there will be no papers in this matter". He further said that the court officials are willing to train lawyers on Saturdays on how to use technology.

So apart from hearing, please let us know if you all need the training, we will organise this". Justice MR Shah said to a hesitant counsel, "We also got training. It has to start sometime".
