Delhi HC orig jurisdiction to be raised to Rs 2 cr

The Delhi district court’s pecuniary jurisdiction may increase from Rs 20 lakh to Rs 2 crore after the proposal was considered in a meeting of judges of the Delhi high court yesterday, according to two independent sources.

Today rumours have been spreading in Delhi courts’ corridors via text messages that the change has been made.

The pecuniary jurisdiction was enhanced previously in 2002 from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 20 lakh. [DK Mahant]

Update: Formal confirmation from the Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) has arrived, that they have “made a representation” to the Delhi high court’s chief justice and other judges, taking “all steps necessary to safeguard the interest of the members” of the DHCBA.
