High Court sets aside Bar Council’s notification for online polls

Share This

Chandigarh, September 16

Just about a fortnight before online elections were scheduled to elect officer-bearers of about 145 Bar Associations across Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, along with the Punjab and Haryana High Court Bar Association, a Division Bench set aside a notification in this regard.

The notification, issued by the Bar Council for online elections on September 30 and October 1 for the Bar Associations, was challenged through a bunch of petitions placed before a Special Division Bench.

The Bench was asked to adjudicate a vital question of law revolving around the powers of the Bar Council in issuing a notification for online elections.

The issue has been raised by three former presidents of the District Bar Association of Chandigarh and two members. The petition, among others, was argued by senior advocate Anand Chhibbar.

Shankar Gupta and other petitioners submitted the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana has shut its eyes to the plight of the needy lawyers in dire need of funds during these unprecedented trying times. — TNS
