CJ J&K High Court Writes To MoS PMO Seeking Administrative Tribunals At Jammu & Srinagar


JAMMU, MAY 13- Chief Justice of High Court of Jammu and Kashmir, Ms Gita Mittal has written to Dr. Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State seeking establishment of Administrative Tribunal with multiple benches having permanent seats both at Jammu as well as Srinagar.

While showing her deep concern regarding lack of required number of Benches with permanent seats in Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Justice has apprised the Minister that with the enforcement of J&K Re-organization Act, 2019 notified vide SO 2889 (E) dated 9th of August 2019 and issuance of notification dated 29th of April 2020 bearing no 208, some 31,641 pending service matters have to be transferred from both the wings of the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir to the Administrative Tribunals and in absence of any infrastructure or registry for operationalising the functioning of the Tribunal in J&K and only a single circuit bench of the Chandigarh Bench of the Tribunal would be hopelessly insufficient to provide efficacious dispensation to the disputants in service matters in the UT of J&K as well as in Ladakh.
