Financial Assistance of ₹5000 Each Granted to 16,448 Advocates To Deal With COVID-19 Crisis: Bar Council Of Delhi

Financial assistance of Rs 5000/- has been granted by Bar Council of Delhi to 16,448 needy advocates who are facing problem regarding finance in this Covid-19 pandemic. This information was given to Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jain on a PIL for issuing a direction to the Advocate Welfare Fund Trust in order to give extra payments to those advocates who are facing financial problem in this lockdown situation.

According to the Bar Council of Delhi, a meeting will be conducted by the Indigent Committee in order to acknowledge the applications of advocates who need extra payment to support their families in this pandemic situation.

The extra payments which are to be made on behalf of the advocates shall be distributed from the general funds of the Council. It is submitted that one of the main reason that advocates are facing financial crisis is that Delhi Government did not give any money regarding medical and term insurance. If this money would have been provided to the advocates then the advocates would be in little relief in supporting their families.

The Council also submitted that donations can also be collected from the advocates who can afford in order to help the needy advocates in this pandemic situation.

In order to avoid the misuse of money the same shall be applied uniformly in order to enhance the financial as well as medical support in legitimate and appropriate cases.

The above report was submitted by the Chairman of the Bar Council of Delhi, Mr. KC Mittal.
