An authorized office from the claimant, SBI Cards and Payments Services was trying to serve him the notice and the office sent a PDF along with the message to Jadhav on WhatsApp. Justice Patel issued a ruling, For the purposes of service of Notice under Order XXI Rule 22, I will accept this. The important thing to note here is that the reason Justice Patel ruled the delivery of notice through WhatsApp was because of the indication that the notice was not only sent but the attachment was opened as well along with the message.

To note this, he went on to add, I do so because the icon indicators clearly show that not only was the message and its attachment delivered to the Respondent s number but that both were opened. This comes right after WhatsApp opened its UPI-powered payment service for all its users in the Indian market.

The company had already launched the ability to send and receive money from other users on WhatsApp a couple of weeks back. However, the wider rollout for the mass audience was delayed due to legal troubles, especially with Facebook s data sharing policy with third-parties.
