Many members expressed their views in the General House meeting and after detailed deliberations the House resolved to restore the voting rights to the young lawyers who are enrolled as member of the Association till the date of issue of Election Notification. The issue of monthly subscription was also discussed threadbare.
The General House streamlined the whole subscription criteria and decided to reduce the monthly subscription, besides, senior members of more than 50 years standing shall be exempted from the monthly subscription fees as a mark of respect to them for their contribution in the field of legal profession. However, the monthly subscription by the senior Designate Advocates was kept intact as per earlier decision of the General House.
