CHAIRMAN OF the All-India Bar Association Adish C Aggarwala urged the Madhya Pradesh Government to withdraw the increased court fee in the State.
He said that if the increased court fee of MP Government was not withdrawn, the lawyers across the country would abstain from work on August 12.
Aggarwala said that a meeting of the leaders of the High Court Bar Associations of the country had been convened on July 30 to discuss this issue. He said that the MP Government’s decision to increase the court fee would deprive the poor of justice.
He said that in 2003, the Government of India had set up a committee, comprising registrar-general of the Supreme Court, registrar-general of high courts, Union law secretary, two lawyers and others. This committee was set up to submit report to bring parity in the court fees throughout the country.
