New Delhi (ILNS): In a first of its kind, the Madhya Pradesh High Court has secured the interest of local lawyers by making it mandatory for anyone filing a case to appoint a local lawyer. Under this, now in any case without the appointment of a local lawyer, it will not be possible to file a case. If any suit is filed, it will be dismissed as an incomplete category. To remove the imperfection, a local lawyer’s Vakalatnama must be invoked.

Manish Tiwari, Secretary and State Bar Member, High Court Bar Association, Jabalpur has informed that on the instructions of Chief Justice Sanjay Yadav (Acting), Registrar General Rajendra Kumar Wani has duly issued the order.

High Court Bar Association’s executive member Yash Soni had written a letter to the then Chief Justice as the bar representative and requested to appoint the local counsel in connection with the filing of cases in the high court.

The letter states that Section-3 of the high court rules, 2008 provides that if the parties appoint a lawyer from outside Jabalpur, Indore or Gwalior, they will also have to appoint a local counsel. In the Corona pandemic, advocates living outside the areas are filing cases through e-filing and arguing through video conferencing. This is in violation of section 3 of the high court rules. It was made mandatory to follow this rule.
