The Mumbai Bench of the NCLT has today issued a notice putting strict rules around the age-old practice of 'mentioning'. Mentionings are typically done by lawyers before the court when the subject matter requires urgent relief.

Until now, lawyers would seek urgent listing of matters before the NCLT, by mentioning the matter before the bench for urgent consideration. Lawyers would pass on a 'praecipe' (a practice unique to Mumbai) to the bench explaining the urgent circumstances that necessitated the mentioning.
