Supreme Court urges Uttar Pradesh to devise policy to ensure government lawyers are paid fees on time

In an order passed on February 12, a bench of Justices Abhay S Oka and Ujjal Bhuyan said that forcing State lawyers to move courts for their dues was not desirable and will discourage talented lawyers from appearing for the State.

“If this scenario of creating a situation where the advocate is compelled to approach the Court of law to recover fees from the State of Uttar Pradesh continues, it will discourage the talented Members of the Bar from appearing for the State of Uttar Pradesh. We, therefore, hope and trust that a proper and rational policy is effectively implemented so that the fees of the Advocates representing the State will be paid promptly and within a reasonable time,” the bench stated.
