Law deptt warns govt counsels against playing truant
JAMMU, Feb 9: Taking serious note of the usual non-appearance of senior Additional Advocates General, Additional Advocates General, Deputy Advocates General and the government advocates in the courts to represent the state government, the Law department has warned of disciplinary action against them including cancellation of appointment.

It said the J&K High Court vide order dated 27.12.2017 and 28.12.2017 passed in SWP No: 1275/2011 and OWP No: 1959/2015 observed that senior AAGs, AAGS, Deputy AGs and the government advocates were not filing the "Memo of Appearance" and were seeking unnecessary adjournments in the matters.

“To overcome the practice of persistent non-appearance in courts and seeking unnecessary adjournments, the senior AAGS, AAGs, Deputy AGs and government advocates are impressed upon to ensure their obligatory appearance in the cases that are assigned to them, failing which the matter will be viewed seriously by the Law department including forfeiting/cancellation of their appointments,” said a circular issued by the Secretary to the Government, Law department, Abdul Majid Bhat.

“The High Court has taken it seriously and ordered that all Senior AAGS, AAGS, Deputy AGs and the government advocates, appearing on behalf of the state or the department concerned, shall file their "Memo of Appearance" in particular cases that are assigned to them, as a condition precedent,” the Circular said.
