Review decision to use English in courts: Oppn


Review decision to use English in courts: Oppn

Chandigarh, July 10

Opposition parties today sought a review of the latest order of Punjab and Haryana HC which makes it mandatory for lower courts to ensure the abstract of the case, depositions of witnesses and judgments in English language only.

The SAD said it would make the justice delivery system a cumbersome exercise for 90 per cent of the population of Punjab.

Sukhpal Singh Khaira, president, Punjab Ekta Party, held the Capt Amarinder Singh government responsible for issuing a notification, making it mandatory for lower judiciary in Punjab to use English as official language.

He said the notification printed in Punjab Government Gazzette on May 8, 2019, contained amendment in rule 1, Part A of the Chapter of the Rules and Orders of Punjab and Haryana High Court (Practice and Procedure)-IV of the original notification dated October 29, 2018. The amended rule, however, has become operational from July 8, 2019.

SAD leader Daljit Singh Cheema said directing courts to use English would be inconvenient to the common man. In Punjab, more than 90 per cent population speaks and understands only Punjabi. — TNS
