The application is allowed,” the bench noted during the hearing.

Where accordingly the bench disposed of the exemption application as well while directing the appellants i.e., Prospect Capital Ltd. & Another to apply for the certified copy of the impugned order and If the same is done, the certified copy of the impugned order be made available to the appellants within five working days from today.

The present matter was heard through video conference due to the Covid-19 pandemic and for the next hearing, the parties were asked to take instructions from the Registrar 48 hrs. before the date fixed in order to find out as to whether the appeal would be heard through video conference or through physical hearing.
