When a PIL seeking a direction to implement CCTV cameras in courts in Tamil Nadu came up for hearing before the first bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice M Sundar, Government Pleader M K Subramanian furnished a copy of the Government Order dated November 29, 2016 providing sanction and allocation. 
The bench on recording the government sanction closed the PIL after noting “Now the tender will have to be floated which should be done expeditiously so that the installation works takes place at the earliest.” 
The PIL filed by Advocate Kasi Ramalingam had sought to prevent any untoward incidents in and out of the Courts in Tamil Nadu. 
The first bench on realising that the proposal sent by the High Court confined merely to both the high courts and the sessions courts in Chennai, had sought to evolve a proposal covering all the court complexes in the state and kept pursuing its progress.
