New Circular: Lawyers Should Not Use Saliva For Affixing Court Fee Stamps And Turning Over Pages

A new circular has been issued that directs lawyers, court staffs, munshis, litigants, naib courts, and police officials to not use saliva while affixing court fee stamps on applications, petitions, summons, notices, etc and turning over pages. The circular has been made by the Tis Hazari Court in wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The lawyers are advised to only use a plastic sponge damper pad while inspecting any type of judicial file. The prime aim behind this is to fight against the coronavirus. The circular gives strict compliance with the aforesaid directions and asked to take it seriously. Delhi is one of the worst-affected states by the Covid-19 pandemic. The functioning of the Delhi High Court and its subordinate courts in the capital has been suspended while restricting the hearing to urgent matters through video conference only in view of the extension of nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19. The court has issued the circular to check the spread of COVID 19 infection in the courts and has asked the concerned people to adhere to it seriously. This is a new rule for lawyers in India.

You can read the complete  circular issued by District and Sessions Judge Girish Kathpalia following:
