The Madras high court has ticked off 485 legal counselors for non-installment of chamber leases and cautioned them that their chamber portion on high court grounds would be crossed out on the off chance that they don’t pay unfulfilled obligations by September-end.
Together, the 485 allottees owe Rs 35 lakh to the court, said enlistment center (organization) in a notification coursed to all legal advisors through the every day cause list.
Generally, new and old law chambers on court grounds are dispensed to one fundamental allottee and two or more co-allottees each. The non-installment, hence, is with respect to all inhabitants, which may work out to around 1,500.
Settling September 30 as due date for installment of rental unfulfilled obligations, the enlistment center said fizzling which their distributions would be scratched off on October 1.
Attorneys are given office chamber space at a financed rental rate on the grounds.
“I am paying a month to month rent of Rs 186 or more upkeep expenses. Absolute rent is Rs 240. There are five tenants, including Rs 1,200 for our room,” said an attorney who has been distributed chamber on the second floor of the new extra law chambers.
A comparable cautioning notice issued a couple of months back evoked tepid reaction from the legal advisors.
