Works in courts in Jalandhar would be paralysed on 14 & 15 September because of strike call given by District Bar Association Jalandhar. Lawyers are protesting against a steep increase in court fees. For example , for Vakalatnama ( Power of Attorney ) given by a client to his counsel court fees has been increased nearly 40 times. Lawyers would , also, block traffic between 11am to 12 noon on highways. The meeting of District Bar Association ( DBA ) was chaired by President DBA BS Lucky and Secretary Rajbir Singh.
