On February 12, about 14 thousand advocates of the state will be on strike in protest against the ignorance of the central government on the demands of the advocates. In such cases, the functionaries in the High Court, District Court, and Tehsil level courts can be delayed.
Nandan Singh Kanyal, the member of Bar Council of India, told that the High Court and the tehsil level advocates will submit a demand letter to MLAs and District Magistrates in the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 12th of February on the strike, at Parliament House. Lalit Belwal, president of Nainital High Court Bar Association, told that the High Court Bar advocates on the direction of Bar Council of India will remain absent from judicial work on February 12.
In the past, a demand letter was issued by the Bar Council of India President Manan Kumar Mishra to the Prime Minister’s Office, which stated that no budget has been placed for the welfare of advocates for the interim budget. The courts do not have chambers, due to which advocates are having problem. On falling sick and death, the family is not given financial assistance from the government.
There was a demand from the Bar Council of India that proper arrangement for advocates, proper arrangements for their seating should be made and they should be given free internet facility. Similarly, the Bar Council of India made demands for appropriate arrangements for sitting of clients, giving ten thousand rupees per month to new needy lawyers, arranging life insurance for advocates and their families, giving at least 50 lakh rupees to the untimely death.
