Early Times Report
JAMMU, Nov 8: The work in High Court Jammu Wing as well as District Courts Jammu, Kathua, Samba, Udhampur, Hiranagar, Akhnoor, Ramban, Nowshera, Sunderbani, Reasi, Katra, Bhaderwah, Rajouri and Poonch remained affedted as the strike of agitating advocates entered 6th day today. Lawyers are on strike for fulfilling their demands like roll back of divesting of registration powers from Judicial Officers to Revenue Department and shifting of High Court from Janipur to Raika Bahu.
Meanwhile, the invitation of Chief Justice, Gita Mittal, office bearers of J&KHCBAJ namely Abhinav Sharma President, Rohit Bhagat, Vice President, Abhishek Wazir General Secretary, Pardeep Majotra Joint Secretary and Sushant Samnotra Treasurer along with senior Advocates held a detailed deliberation in presence of Advocate General DC Raina, Sr Adv. In the meeting which lasted for about one & half hours, two issues i.e. shifting of powers of registration of documents from Judicial Magistrate to the Revenue authorities and proposed shifting of J&K High Court Complex from Janipur to Raika were discussed as was mandated by the resolution of General House of JKHCBAJ held on November 1.
It is pertinent to mention herein that JKHCBAJ is on indefinite strike on these two issues since November 1, the Advocates abstained work in all the courts including J&K High Court, District Courts, Subordinate Courts and all other Tribunals including Armed Forces Tribunal, Revenue Courts. During the detailed discussions, the senior members of the Bar and office bearers informed the Chief Justice about the difficulties and consequences being faced by the public as well as lawyers fraternity on account of shifting of registration work outside the purview of the judiciary/ court complex. The members of the Bar and office bearers also opposed shifting of the High Court complex from Janipur Jammu to Raika. The senior members present in the meeting projected their individual view points in the interest of the members of the Bar in general and junior members of the Bar in particular so that they are not deprived of their livelihood and their sustainability which they are getting from the registration work.
Chief Justice assured the members that genuine grievances of the lawyers fraternity and particularly young lawyers will be seriously and effectively considered and also informed that as on date there is no formal decision of shifting of the J&K High Court complex from Janipur to Raika.
After threadbare discussions it was decided that the 2nd round of meeting was proposed to be held after the four non-working days in the J&K High Court and next meeting is expected to be held on November 13, in order to discuss the further course of action.
