Delhi govt committed to welfare of lawyers: Dikshit

New delhi may 4, 2013

Chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday underlined the need of welfare of lawyers and announced a hike in the corpus fund of Bar Council of Delhi for welfare measures.

The city government had contributed Rs 1 crore at the the time of constitution of the corpus fund. “Since it was long time ago, I am sure that the time has come to take a review and increase the amount,” said Dikshit while speaking at a national seminar on welfare of lawyers organised by the Bar Council of Delhi. The seminar was inaugurated by President Paranab Mukherjee.

Dikshit stated the lawyers’ community has played a significant role in achieving the freedom of India and the contribution of the lawyers and jurists in the struggle for liberty, equality, justice and truth remains unparalleled.


“The Constitution enjoins the state to secure social, economic and political justice to all its citizens. Lawyers are agents of peace and order in the society. Delhi government recognises the need of welfare measures to be taken in the interest of the legal fraternity,” said Dikshit.
She recounted that city government has provided parking facilities in all court complexes for the excusive use of lawyers including a multi-level automatic car parking at Delhi High Court complex. The government had contributed more than Rs 200 crore for the project.

Dikshit also stated that her government would provide all possible assistance in enriching liabraries for lawyers in order to facilitate access to them to the legal provisions and decided cases.

Medical insurance


“The government is also in favour of an appropriate medical insurance scheme for the lawyers,” said Dikshit while calling upon the Bar council to bring a concrete proposal in this regard.

Meanwhile, speaking on the occasion, Delhi law minister Ramakant Goswami said that city government is of the view that the lawyers of district and High Court of Delhi must be served in the best possible manners in comparison with their community in other states.
