Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 11: On the call of the J&K High Court Bar Association Jammu (JKHCBAJ), the lawyers abstained from working in the High Court, Subordinate Courts and all other Tribunals in Jammu to protest against the Government Notification dated 10-09-2021, whereby jurisdiction to deal with Debts Recovery cases of Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh have been transferred to Chandigarh Bench.
Regarding the issue of the transfer of Debt Recovery cases, a press conference was also held in the Bar Office at High Court, Jammu, wherein MK Bhardwaj, Sr Advocate & President with other office bearers including Mohinder Pal Singh Pali, Adv Vice President, Surjeet Singh Andotra, Adv General Secretary, Aditya Sharma, Adv Joint Secretary and Amandeep Singh, Adv Treasurer participated.
Addressing the media persons, Bhardwaj said that it is a calculated move/design on part of the government to cause undue inconvenience to the public in general and Advocates in particular in the UT of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. He said that the government has already transferred the registration work to the Revenue officers and the Revenue offices are located at far off and scattered places. He said that earlier the registration work was with the Judicial officers in Court premises but due to shifting of the registration work the members of the Bar and public at large are facing inconvenience and difficulties.
Bhardwaj further said that at present there is no Consumer Commission & Consumer Forum working in the UT of Jammu & Kashmir and Government of Jammu & Kashmir still has not constituted and notified the same till date. There is no information about the pending cases and the files. He said that for the convenience of the Advocates and public at large, the location of the Central Administrative Tribunal, Registration work and other Tribunals must be shifted in the Court premises under one roof. Bhardwaj further said that the Advocates who are working in the far flung area /courts would also face difficulties in contesting their Debt Recovery cases at Chandigarh and this decision will also affect the public at large. He said that due to the anti-people policies on part of the government, the public is facing inconvenience and harassment.
Bhardwaj said that it has come to our notice that there is no regular Presiding officer for the last nearly two years at Chandigarh and members of the Debt Recovery Tribunal Bar Association Chandigarh are on strike against the non-availability of Bench at Chandigarh.
Bhardwaj finally urged upon the Government to revoke the notification dated 10-09-2021 within a period of 15 days and also redress the above mentioned genuine grievances, otherwise the J&K High Court Bar Association, Jammu has no other option except to fight against the anti-public decisions taken by the Government of UT of Jammu & Kashmir for getting their genuine demands fulfilled.
