"Late last evening, it was brought to the notice of the SC registry that the official emails were carrying an image as footer which had no connection whatsoever with the functioning of the judiciary. The NIC which provides email services to the apex court, was directed to drop that image," an official said.

The NIC has complied with the direction and has changed the picture at the footer to that of the top court. Some of the lawyers had lodged a complaint in this regard.
