Supreme Court

The Kerala HC Advocates association had opposed the court fee hike

Last Updated on June 23, 2024 by News Desk

The Kerala High Court Advocates Association(KHCAA) submitted its opinion to the expert committee, headed by Justice V K Mohanan opposing the hike in court fees.

The KHCAA stated that the decision of the expert committee whereby the recommendations were given for enhancing the court fees was without understanding the ground realities.

During the 2024 budget speech, the proposal to revise the court fees was submitted whereby a 5 % increase was suggested.

The KHCAA stated that they condemn the decision taken by the state government to implement this recommendation by the expert committee.

They also stated that justice is the core of the Preamble of our Constitution and thus court fees cannot be considered revenue for the dispensation of justice.

They further also highlighted the issue of the government not taking up adequate steps for the advocates like not passing the advocate’s protection bill.
