Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA)

27 September 2012

The Supreme Court lifts stay on Delhi high court’s court fee hike after Solicitor General Rohinton Nariman tells the court that the stay would cause irreparable harm to the state.

He said that the state was losing an average sum of Rs 1.5 crore every day due to the stay, and it would be impossible to recover this amount even if the constitutional validity of the Act prescribing the fee hike is later upheld. [Express]

The Delhi high court bar association had filed a public interest litigation in the high court against the Court Fee (Amendment) Act 2012 by which the present court fee was increased tenfold.
