Lockdown: Lawyers wanted financial aid, SC dismisses plea
Lockdown: Lawyers wanted financial aid, SC dismisses plea

Everyone is facing financial difficulties due to the lockdown. On a plea seeking financial assistance to lawyers during the lockdown, the Supreme Court rejected the order, refusing to pass it.

In its statement, a three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Justice NV Ramna refused to give any order to the BCI after hearing the plea of advocate Pawan Prakash Pathak. The petition sought financial assistance to lawyers facing difficulties during the nationwide lockdown caused by the coronavirus. For this, the Supreme Court was asked to give appropriate instructions to the Bar Council of India (BCI).

Apart from this, the petitioner further said that there is Advocates Act 1961 for lawyers practicing independently. Under Section 5 of the Act, it is necessary that if they require any kind of help, a guideline can be passed for them. Pathak said that lawyers practicing independently have no means of income, so the Supreme Court should pass appropriate orders or directions to the BCI to help these lawyers.
