NILAMBAZAR, June 24 � The District Advocates Bar, Karimganj has demanded the setting up of a separate executive court to deal with the executive cases. In this connection, a memorandum was submitted by the Bar to the Deputy Commissioner of Karimganj recently.
The advocates said that it has been laid under Section 309 CrPC, that in every inquiry or trial, the proceedings shall be held as expeditiously as possible. But, practising lawyers face several problems for conducting the executive cases in the different executive courts, viz., cases under Sections 107, 133, 144, 145, 147 CrPC etc., where the advocates have to wait a long time with their clients, as the executive magistrates (Additional District Magistrates) remain busy with other official duties/administrative functions etc. It is to be mentioned here that all practising lawyers struggle to get dates for the cases in time, and as a result, the litigant public gets annoyed with them as they are deprived of getting proper justice in time. The members of the bar face great problems due to regular adjournments of the cases.
The said problems cannot be solved, unless there is an executive court to deal with executive cases only, the memorandum urged. So, they have demanded establishment of separate executive courts for dealing with the executive cases.
They added that the non-judicial stamps plays a vital role in performing various functions. But the acute shortage of these stamps particularly of lower denomination like Rs 5, 10, 20 etc., in Karimganj for more than three years now, has led to untold suffering for the clients. Though these stamps are available in plenty in Guwahati, Silchar, Hailakandi etc., these are not available at Karimganj due to reasons unknown to advocates. They therefore urged the Deputy Commissioner to ensure regular supply of these in the interest of the general public.
