The Orissa High Court has observed that the administrative side of the Court is taking necessary steps on the issue pertaining to the use of A4 sheets for filings before judicial forums in the state.

The division bench of Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice Dr B.R. Sarangi made this observation on Friday while disposing of a public interest litigation filed by Advocate Sidharth Pr Das seeking permission for use of A4 sheets in the High Court and all other judicial forums in Orissa.

This public interest litigation has been filed seeking issuance of a direction to the opposite parties-authorities to bring out necessary amendments to Rule 4(i) under Chapter-VI of Part-II of the Rules of the High Court of Orissa, 1948 so as to give effect to the directions for the use of A4 size paper in the Orissa High Court; and also in all other Courts, tribunals and other judicial and quasi-judicial forums, sub-ordinate to it in the State of Odisha, so as to bring uniformity about the use of paper and to protect the environment by minimizing the wastage of papers.

The Court said that since the administrative section is already deliberating on the issue, it is appropriate to dispose of the PIL in those terms.

The order states, “This Court has been informed that the High Court, on the administrative side, is already seized of the matter and take necessary steps. Therefore, we deem it appropriate not to keep this matter pending unnecessarily. This writ petition is accordingly disposed of.”

The petitioner had asserted that the transfer is not going to solely shield the atmosphere by minimizing the wastage of papers however may even carry uniformity in all courts.
