Meanwhile, it was also stated that the first meeting of the Chamber Committee had taken place on February 6,2020 wherein on the suggestion of the SCBA, the Committee had agreed to allot Halls on several floors for being converted into Cubicles to be allotted to members in addition the Constructed 234 chambers. In that meeting, it was agreed to prepare a design for this purpose. However, Due to Covid intervening and lockdown having been announced, the progress was delayed.
The Circular further states that the issue of allotment of Chambers will be resolved sooner than anticipated and a final decision would be taken by the Chamber Committee. The same will be communicated. However, we felt that the Members must be informed of the developments since the delay has rightly caused anxiety among all of us.
This is a very welcome development for the Bar as said in the circular.
At last, the Notification ended with the Diwali Greeting.
