Plea in Delhi HC seeking financial support for lawyers and an extension of loan duration for one year

Advocate Sunil Kumar Tiwari has filed a petition to the Delhi High Court seeking financial assistance from the State government to be provided to the lawyers/advocates registered with the Bar Council of Delhi irrespective of their permanent residential address or voter ID card.

He has mentioned in his petition that most of these lawyers belong to middle or lower class of the society and it has become difficult for most of them to survive financially through the pandemic. It has become difficult for them to repay house loans or car loans or pay credit card EMIs or some are even facing major difficulty in paying their house rent.

This situation has put advocates and some people in great difficult situation and it certainly violates Article 21 of The Constitution of India, 1950 which is ‘Right to Life’ and also includes ‘Right to Livelihood’ which is a fundamental right given to all the citizens of India by the Government.

Adv Tiwari has also recommended the Government to prolong the moratorium period for the redemption of the term loan or credit cards for another 12 months or until the pandemic situation becomes better and till then the interest is fully forgiven or charge the interest rate as per the rate of the savings bank for the advocates during the moratorium period.
