JAMMU, Feb 11: A meeting of General House of J&K High Court Bar Association (JKHCBA), Jammu, was held under the Presidentship of BS Slathia, Sr. Advocate, in the Conference Hall of District Court Complex, Jammu, which lasted for more than three hours. This meeting was held to discuss the issues facing the community of lawyers and date for holding election of new team of the office bearers of the Association.
The General House responding to the call of Bar Council of India (BCI) also discussed the minutes of joint meeting of the Bar Council of India relating to welfare measures for the lawyers and litigant public of the country and endorsed all the demands raised by the Bar Council of India including budgetary allocation of Rs 5,000 crores for lawyers and litigants' welfare in Annual Budget of Union in order to implement the requirements of insurance cover for the Lawyers and their families (dependents), "Stipend for needy new entrants at the Bar upto 5 years of their practice (minimum Rs 10,000 per month), financial protection to lawyers and their dependents in case of untimely death or incapacitation by reasons of disease, accident, etc.
It was unanimously decided to suspend the work, in all Courts including High Court tomorrow and take out a protest rally from High Court Complex to Governors' House, in support of the resolution adopted by the Bar Council of India, and submit a Memorandum to the President of India and Prime Minister of India through the Governor of J&K State.
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. The Election for the new office bearers shall be held on April 20 for tenure of one year.
Speaking on the occasion, Association President Slathia said that the establishment of AIIMS at Vijaypur was the result of relentless struggle of lawyers and people of Jammu. He congratulated the people of Jammu province in general and young lawyers in particular for their contribution.
The General House also placed on record its gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who on February 3 laid the foundation stone of All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) at Vijaypur and also laid foundation stone of the first-ever University in Ladakh.
