Advocates must cooperate with HC's decision: Bar Council of Delhi

The Delhi Bar Council appealed to all advocates to join forces and fully cooperate with the decision of the Delhi High Court to commence the scheduled opening of courts in the city for physical hearings in order to overcome the present situation of COVID-19 and has referred this present situation as "between the Devil and the Deep Sea."

The Bar Council said this step is in the right direction for the resumption of court working and the onus on all of us to make it a success.”

Reminding all the advocates that a comprehensive plan to regulate the functioning of the courts in the context of COVID-19 was under preparation, the Bar Council commended the High Court for its decision to reopen the courts in a gradual manner from 1 September onwards.

A letter from K.C. Mittal, Chairman of Bar Council of Delhi says: "We have found that some members of the profession oppose resumption of physical hearing, but it is not the right time to talk for or against physical hearing because the model will be introduced on an experimental basis and we hope it will protect stakeholders ' interests on the program."

The letter also stated  “Considering the gravity of the complexity of the matter, we would appeal to all Advocates to fully cooperate and make use of the physical opening of courts on a rotational basis to mitigate the hardship and it is time for Coordination Committee and Bar Associations and the Advocates, in general, to come forward to assist the Hon’ble Chief Justice and other Hon’ble Judges of the High Court of Delhi to put in place a comprehensive plan and ensure that there is due compliance of the same, to obviate any adverse situation.”
