    Resume ‘Physical’ Court Functioning: Bar Council

    If no positive steps are taken by the Committee by September 1, the Bar Council threatened to appropriate democratic agitation program

    GUWAHATI: The Bar Council of Assam, Nagaland, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim, (the statutory body of advocates in the region), has demanded to resume the physical court functioning at all levels of the state by September 1.

    The Bar Council has recently held an emergent meeting and unanimously resolved to submit a representation before the committee comprising of five sitting judges of the Gauhati high court to take recommendations from the Bar Council and other stakeholders including the North East Bar Council for the resumption of physical courts at the earliest.

    In an official communiqué, the Bar Council said that though it had submitted the modalities in favour of resuming physical courts on August 21, the high court committee later without communicating its decision in writing issued a notification extended the existing system of virtual courts till September 5.

    The physical court proceedings were restricted in the region’s court campuses owing to COVID 19 outbreak.

    Kulesh Goswami, secretary of the Bar Council, said, “If no positive steps are taken by the Committee or the High Court by September 1, the Council would resort to appropriate democratic agitation program.”
