Lawyers of ten district courts in the city struck work on Monday,to protest government decision to increase the number of revenue and judicial districts in Delhi from nine to 11.

All lawyers abstained from work,except at Patiala House court complex,where the work at special 2G court and other courts remained unaffected.

“Nearly 50,000 lawyers abstained from work today,” Chairman of Co-ordination Committee of All District Court Bar Associations of Delhi R N Vats said.

The committee said government’s move of adding two more revenue districts lacks justification and is “mere wastage of public money”. The bar association at the Dwarka district court will continue with the strike on Tuesday,to protest the transfer of several areas of the southwest district from Dwarka to other courts.
