This is a great initiative taken by the petitioner but i don't think top court is going to approve this request since this will hold judges accountable directly.

they were however not in favor of public access to the footage which live streaming does.

The top court had, however, made it clear that the footage of the CCTV camera or the audio recording will not be made available under the Right To Information Act and not supplied to anyone without permission of the concerned court.

I have some relatives who are advocates. They told me that in lower courts there are some judges who dont follow the timmings of the court room. They come to work when wver they feel like, they can take a break for however long they want to, they can leave whenever they want to. It is for judges like these that such provisions should be made so that they can be held accountable.

The sad reality is that most of the courtrooms in india function like this.
