Bihar lawyers to boycott courts on Wednesday

india Updated: Feb 24, 2009 23:33 IST

Over one lakh lawyers of various courts across Bihar will strike work on Wednesday to seek restoration of old court timings, effected by the Patna High Court administration in December last year.

The strike was called by the coordination committee of the three associations of the lawyers of the Patna High Court-- Barristers Association, Lawyers Association and Advocates Association--the committee convenor Y C Verma said.

An extra-ordinary general body meeting of the coordination committee this afternoon has called upon all lawyers across Bihar to abstain from professional work to seek restoration of the old court timings as the new timings have adversely affected our professional work, he said.

The working hours of the Patna High Court was altered from 10.30 am-4.15 pm schedule to 10.15 am-4.30 pm, while those of the lower courts were changed from 11 am-5 pm to 10.50 am-5.30 pm.
