Court vacations must not be done away with: Madras High Court bar bodies to Judges’ Committee

The judge’s committee comprising of Justices SM Subramaniam, P Velmurugan, M Dhandhapani, and G Ilangovan met today with Justices Subramaniam and Velmurugan attending the meeting physically from the principal bench of the High Court at Madras and Justices Ilangovan and Dhandapani attending the meeting from Madurai via video conference.

Office bearers of the Madras High Court Advocates Association (MHAA), the Madras Bar Association (MBA), the Law Association, the Women Lawyers Association, and the Madurai Bar Association were present at the meeting.

The judges said that a large section of the society and the parliamentary panel believed that the system of long court vacations was a colonial practice and impeded a litigant’s access to courts.

Therefore, the committee felt that in a bid to keep the doors of the constitutional courts open for litigants through the year, the members of the judiciary must think about making a “personal sacrifice” and give up the practice of long vacations, Justice Subramaniam and Velmurugan said.
