Advocates’ Association Protest Demanding Financial Package For Lawyers and Clerks

Protest by the Advocates Association Bangalore (AAB) in front of the Karnataka High Court in Bengaluru today, 23rd June,2020 was witnessed against the government's neglect to provide financial assistance to the Advocates and their inaction in announcing a special financial package to the Advocates.

The Association is demanding a special government package of Rs. 50 Crores. This comes after the Karnataka High Court on last Friday, 19th June, 2020, ordered the State Bar Council to ensure all lawyers across the state provide financial assistance and that assistance is not only provided to registered clerks working in Bengaluru.

The Advocates Association has told the High Court at one of its hearings that an sum of Rs. 8.98,000/- had been raised by donations to provide financial support to lawyers in need during the ongoing pandemic. The committee was set up under the leadership of Senior Advocate DLN Rao to collect funds from advocates for the benefit of Advocates' Clerks in need of financial assistance in the aftermath of COVID-19.

The Advocates' Association of Bengaluru (AAB) has told the court that this committee and the office holders of the Attorneys' Association have started to collect funds for the lawyers' clerks.

The Court observed that measures were being taken in the right direction and was told that the advocates had raised a donation of 2.5 lakhs and that more effort was being made to raise more funds.
