Relief Fund For Lawyer For Necessities

Amid the outbreak of Covid-19 and the court work being standstill, the Karnataka State Bar Council (KSBC), launched KSBC Covid-19 Advocates Relief Fund to help young, women and financially weak lawyers practising in the state. 

This move comes pursuant to the joint decision of all the bars to assist needy lawyers. For instance, the Bar Council of Delhi had passed a resolution last month to extend grant of Rs. 5,000 per advocate, who were in dire need of help due to loss of work caused by the restricted functioning of the courts. The Odisha Bar Council had decided to provide financial assistance to the lawyers in the need of aid, particularly those having a standing of less than 10 years of practise.

In view thereof, the Council has urged the advocates who are financially stable to contribute liberally. The circular released by the Council read as follows:

Some of the Advocates Associations have taken steps to distribute food grains and medicines to its needy members.

It added that, Now the KSBC has also launched the Karnataka State Bar Council Covid-19 Advocates Relief Fund to help needy advocates.

The contribution amount can be directly deposited to the A/C of KSBC and the details of the amount collected and the details of the beneficiaries will be published in the website of the KSBC to maintain transparency and accountability.
