Earlier, the NCLAT had informed that all filing related works for Chennai bench would also be handled at the Delhi-based Principal bench only as it would take around two months to create infrastructure there.

"...it is provided that since Infrastructure as also Human Resources is lacking and raising of the same is likely to consume not less than two months, all filings in respect of Chennai Bench Jurisdiction shall be done at the Principal Bench at New Delhi even after 18th March, 2020 i.e. the date of constitution of the Chennai Bench, till the Bench at Chennai is expected to become functional in all probability in the month of June, 2020," it said.
