There have been two instances when the Supreme Court of India has had it’s bench outside Delhi.
The pending appeals before the privy council of Kashmir and Hyderabad were under Article 374(4) transferred to the Supreme Court of India. The records of these cases were in Urdu and thus their translation would have incurred huge expenses.
Therefore, to avoid all these costs, the Supreme Court of India held its bench at Kashmir and Hyderabad which decided those appeals.
In Hyderabad the bench was held between August to December 1950. During this time the bench decided 382 appeals.
In Kashmir the bench was held only for a fortnight in 1954. The bench on the fortnight decided 18 appeals.
