Appreciation on the Contribution of Legal Fraternity

The judges, lawyers, and people worked even in a pandemic. The CJ Raghvendra Singh Chauhan appreciated them. He said that they switched to the digital mode. They also started conducting courts through videoconferencing mode immediately after the lockdown. Telangana high court was the sole high court. There all the 9 benches functioned through online mode during this crisis. The advocates and the others were able to continue with the very online mode. They quickly adopted the new mode of functioning in the pandemic. The CJ thanked the advocates and the people.

Declaration of Chief Justice

The state of Telangana was the first to start the system of the mobile van. It takes the district courts to the doorsteps of the people. Then their lawyers enter into the van and argue their cases from there. The Chief Justice said that they had started one such mobile van. Three more will soon come. Moreover, soon, all the districts will have such mobile vans taking justice to the people’s doorsteps. This is the first of its kind initiative in the entire country.  

CJ Chauhan pointed out the issues for both the lawyers and the litigants. They are facing unparalleled problems. Fortunately, the State government has come to the rescue of the advocates. The State Government helped by sanctioning Rs 25 crore. The first installment has already been paid to the advocates and to the advocate clerks. 

The Government has also designated three hospitals. The advocates and advocate clerks and their families may suffer from coronavirus. The hospitals will take care of them. CJ thanked the State Government for their concern for the needs of the legal fraternity.
