Kerala High Court: Gazette notification is of no avail unless people know of it

Kerala High Court said , Issuance of Gazette notification is of no avail unless people know of it.

How many of us read the Gazette publications by the government to know changes in law? Most do not.

High Court of Kerala has observed that issuance of Gazette notification is of no avail and due publicity is required to be given in various newspapers of wide circulation in the state, so that people know of the changes in law.

Chief Justice Navaniti Prasad Singh and Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan of a division bench of were considering a submission by the government that an Ordinance issued recently bringing about amendments to the Kerala Conservation of Paddy and Wet Land Rules, 2008, provides opportunity to the public to raise objections with regard to entries included in the data bank.

The government told the High Court that these new rules would go a long way in helping the citizens to correct the mistakes or get the mistakes corrected.

The bench observed: “We would like to impress upon the Government that issuance of Gazette notification is of no avail unless people know of it. The effective manner for that would be that the substance of the notification is published and given due publicity in various newspapers of wide circulation in the State. If this has not already been done, we expect the Government to do so immediately.”
