SCAORA Writes to CJI Seeking Permission for Movement of Advocates Residing in NCR Region to Delhi

Supreme Court Advocates-On-Record Association (SCAORA)

Joseph Aristotle S., Secretary of the Supreme Court Advocates on Record Association (SCAORA) has addressed a letter to CJI SA Bobde urging him to issue directions to allow the movement of Advocates from Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and other NCR areas to their offices located within Delhi.

The letter stated,

In these circumstances, they have been denied access to the courts, to their offices and also relevant case files. “These members of the Bar are not being permitted by the authorities to commute across the borders, thereby denying them such benefit as also their source of livelihood.”

“It is crucial for lawyers to have access to their files kept in their offices/Chambers for effective delivery of justice to their clients. The denial of permission to the lawyers to commute to Delhi from the NCR region precludes them from reaching even those offices which are situated outside the Supreme Court premises and from working from there. Lawyers from across the Delhi borders who need access to their files kept in the presently sealed Supreme Court Chambers are precluded from even applying for due permission to retrieve such files.”
