The Madras High Court has requested office bearers of the Bar Associations at the principal bench and the Madurai bench of the High Court to share their views on a proposal to do away with long court vacations, and instead have High Court judges take days off in a staggered manner..The recommendation to do away with long court vacations was put forward by a Parliamentary panel last year. .The Madras High Court's Registrar General M Jothiraman has now circulated a letter among all Bar associations at the Principal bench in Chennai and the Madurai bench, asking office bearers and senior members to share their views on the issue with the Court’s committee of judges on Wednesday, February 7..The Court committee is expected to meet at the Meeting Hall in the Library of the Annex Building at the High Court’s campus in Chennai. The Registrar General has urged the Bar association office bearers to attend the meeting physically or via video conferencing..In March last year, the members of a Parliamentary panel called for doing away with long vacations in the Supreme Court and the High Courts. The panel on personnel, public grievances, law and justice had said in its report that long vacations in higher judiciary impeded the speedy disposal of cases. It had thus, suggested that judges take personal days off, or take court vacations in a staggered manner, whereby all judges do not go off work at the same time..Following a discussion on this report among the Chief Justices of all High Courts last month, Madras High Court Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala had referred the issue to a committee of judges constituted to monitor the implementation of resolutions passed in the conference. The committee has decided to hear members of the Bar on the same before taking any decision.
