Advocates’ Welfare Scheme: Delhi HC comes to the rescue of lawyer denied benefits

The Delhi High Court bench of Justice Rekha Palli on Tuesday extended support to an advocate who was left out of the Advocates’ Welfare Scheme, initiated by the government to help lawyers affected by the pandemic.

The bench was hearing a petition in which the lawyer was left out in the due process, despite being an enrolled advocate of the Bar Council of Delhi and despite having followed guidelines for the scheme. The petitioner said that when the final list was released in December 2020, the petitioner’s name was not there.
