Tamil Nadu govt announces Rs 3,000 monthly allowance for young lawyers
The Tamil Nadu government on Thursday endorsed Rs 3,000 monthly remittance for young lawyers, who will be paid during their initial two years of training. It is a long pending interest of the legitimate organisation. Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami stated that the plan would profit young advocates who in any case think that its difficult to meet their essential needs during their underlying long stretches of training.
The administrator of the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry P S Amalraj expressed that they were extremely glad to hear that the chief minister has endorsed the plan which will profit around 1,500 to 2,000 young lawyers consistently. It was a pending interest of the chamber as they have been mentioning the legislature for more than 10 years to give such recompense.
The declaration is convenient and would support young lawyers who have totally lost their livelihood due to Covid-19 lockdown. Each lawyer, after enrolment with the state bar council, needs to experience under a senior lawyer for few years and especially for young advocates from rural areas of the state. It takes at least three to four years to set up individual practice as expressed by the Chief Minister.
Most such advocates think that its difficult to try and meet their day to day costs during this difficult pandemic time frame and some are even constrained to change to other field’s. Therefore, in an offer to support such young advocates, the plan has been authorised.
