The Gujarat High Court Advocates' Association has passed a resolution urging the Court to resume physical hearing of as soon as possible and preferably, latest by the end of Diwali Break i.e. from November 23, 2020.

The resolution was passed in a virtual meeting of the Managing Committee held yesterday, i.e. October 28, 2020.

The Association has assured that in case physical functioning of the High Court is resumed, then all the members of the Bar shall strictly follow the SOP that may be provided.

Further, the Association has stated that there are several issues that require personal discussion with the Chief Justice and it is urged that the Managing Committee be accorded a suitable date and time for the same.

Furthermore, it is alleged that despite instructions of the Chief Justice not to withhold the Circulation of any matter on the ground of non-removal of Office Objection, the Registry continues to raise a number of Office Objections, thereby circulation of the matters gets delayed.

"Hon'ble the Chief Justice be requested to issue clear directions to the Registry not to insist on clearance of Office Objections other than the 2 stated above. An undertaking from the concerned Advocate, that she/he shall remove all objections within a period of 1 month after it being raised by Registry should be treated as enough compliance for circulation of the matter," the Resolution states.

Lastly, the Association has urged the Chief Justice to assign subject-wise Roster to each Judge as per the practice that used to prevail before the pandemic, instead of broader assignment of allotting Civil matters to 10 Single Judges and Criminal matters to 10 Single Judges.
