first_imgKolkata: The Calcutta High Court administration has framed rules that consider strike by lawyers as interference to dispensation of justice in accordance with a Supreme Court order that said lawyers have no right to strike. A 69-day ceasework called by lawyers’ associations from February had severely affected the justice delivery system at the Calcutta High Court. The administration told a division bench of Chief Justice Jyotirmoy Bhattacharya and Justice Arijit Banerjee that the rules will be placed before the full court for approval.

The counsel representing the high court administration submitted before the bench that “the rules have been framed and are waiting to be placed before the full court for approval.” A ‘full court’ is a session of a court which is attended by all its judges.

The apex court had directed the high courts to frame rules under Section 34 of the Advocates Act, 1961, to make clear that any strike by lawyers will be treated as interference to the administration of justice, he said today. In 2015, Sarangi had filed an RTI application to know whether such rules had been framed by the Calcutta High Court administration. He was informed that the rules were yet to be framed, Dutta said.Sarangi had then filed a PIL before the high court seeking direction on the administration to frame the rules. In 2016, the then Chief Justice Girish Gupta and Justice Arindam Sinha directed that opinion in this regard be sought from all district courts in the state through the Bar Council of West Bengal and rules be framed within three months after receiving those. When the matter came up for hearing earlier this month, the administration told the court that rules have been framed. Three lawyers’ associations had called a ceasework from February 19 seeking appointment of judges to the high court, whose strength had fallen to 30 only against a sanctioned strength of 72.The ceasework was called off after the union law ministry had appointed seven new judges to the HC.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: The state Water Resources Investigation and Development Department (WRIDD) will soon undertake Minor Irrigation Census (MIC) to have a comprehensive figure of the waterbodies in the entire state.The exercise will be conducted by the State Water Investigation Directorate (SWID) that comes under the aegis of the WRIDD and is responsible for carrying out investigation along with a quantitative and qualitative assessment of water resources in the state.

We cannot deny the fact that groundwater level is depleting and we feel that it is high time to take measures to prevent indiscriminate extraction of groundwater,” a senior official of the WRIDD department said. It may be mentioned that Minor Irrigation covers all waterbodies that include an area less than 2000 hectare. It excludes all the river systems like Teesta, Damodar, Kansabati, Mayurakshi that comes under the category of Major Irrigation.

We are waiting for the approval. The census will begin as soon as we get the nod and our target is to complete the study within a period of one year,” the official added. According to the official, as many as 25 to 30 types of waterbodies including tube wells will be covered under the MIC. SWID is also in the process of preparing a scientific database to curb indiscriminate groundwater extraction. The Directorate will classify all the 341 blocks in the state into three categories — critical, semi-critical and safe and accordingly prepare a roadmap for scientific use of groundwater in the near future. Apart from designating blocks based on the three parameters, the state government will also come out with a direction for the agencies about how much water extraction will be allowed for agriculture or industry purposes.last_img read more
