A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Delhi High Court seeking a direction to the Law Commission of India to prepare a report on the Uniform Judicial Code to make legal terms, abbreviations, case registration.

The petition was filed by advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, who said there exists great differences when comparing judicial terms, abbreviations, norms, phrases, court fees and case registration processes used in the Delhi High Court and that of the Allahabad High Court.

The plea cited different terms used by benches of the Bombay High Court and the Rajasthan High Court, which caused a lot of confusion.

The petitioner pointed out the differences in court fees sought for similar matters and of similar valuation in different states, which causes injury to citizens.

The PIL prayed for a direction to the Law Commission of India for preparing comprehensive report on Uniform Judicial Code in consultation with the High Courts in order to make uniform judicial terms, abbreviations, norms, phrases, court fee structure and case registration process.

The plea also sought a direction to the Law Ministry to take appropriate steps to prepare a comprehensive report on Uniform Judicial Code in consultation with the High Courts;

It requested the constitution of an expert committee to prepare a comprehensive report on Uniform Judicial Code in consultation with the High Courts.

A similar sort of plea was withdrawn by the petitioner before the Supreme Court last year and has now been filed before the Delhi High Court.
