New Delhi (ILNS): A Public Interest Litigation has been filed in the Madhya Pradesh High Court seeking directions to bring in the use of A4 size paper, with printing on both sides of the paper.

The PIL filed by advocate Yash Jain from KMJ Legal Services has sought direction from the court alleging that the use of full-size legal paper makes the justice costly and deteriorates the environment.

The plea states that a fair and rational usage of paper will have a direct effect on the cutting of the trees that will also protect the forests, water bodies, and wildlife. Whereas, Article 48A of the Constitution of India also states that the State shall endeavor to protect and improve the environment and to safeguard the forests and wildlife of the count.

The Madhya Pradesh High Court rule mandates the use of legal paper with double spacing, wide left margin, and one-sided print.

Earlier, in March the Supreme Court had mandated the use of A4 Size paper with an intention to bring uniformity to the usage of paper in court, the circular directed the use of superior quality A4 size paper i.e not less than 75 GSM with printing on both the sides, font style, Times New Roman and 14 Font Size.

Mr. Jain stated that the A4 size paper is the most easily accessible and widely used as compared to the legal size paper, whereas, the A4 size paper is being used by all in general, however, the judicial system still exclusively uses legal size paper.
