CHAIRMAN BAR COUNCIL P.S. AMALRAJ WELCOME SPEECH TO HON’BLE CHIEF JUSTICE SANJIB BANERJEE:
It is my great pleasure to deliver the welcome address to the Hon’ble Chief Justice who sworn in as Chief Justice of our Chartered High Court. Our new Hon’ble Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee is an established personality in our great Indian Judiciary.
Our new Chief Justice delivered speedy and effective justice to everyone who approached his court. His Lordship introduced several reforms in the court functioning system and disposed several landmark issues particularly in Civil, Company, Arbitration, Constitutional matters, Corporate and Intellectual Property Laws, etc., His Lordship dealt with all type of cases and delivered landmark judgments. Even recently, His Lordship banned the Kali Puja in and around Calcutta in view of the on-going pandemic and concern towards it’s residents. In another case with unusual circumstances, His Lordship imposed a fine of Rs. 1 lakh on the Calcutta High Court itself for compulsorily retiring a Railway Magistrate-cum-Judicial Magistrate, who tried to improve train delays
To my knowledge, such a noble act of justice, like, this was done by our great King Manu Needhi Cholan, who is now idolized and worshipped all over our State for his sense of true justice. As we all know, even our Madras High Court campus has a statue of Manu Needhi Cholan. This is a historic occasion in the annals of the Chartered High Court of Madras with the Judiciary, has got New Year gift by appointing the Hon’ble Chief Justice to lead the Judiciary with other eminent judges of the Madras High Court. This is definitely a boon to our Madras High Court, as, His Lordship nature of delivering effective justice and speedy disposals can improve the judicial standards of both the advocates as well as the common public.

All of us, both advocates and public should be thankful that His Lordship has taken charge as Chief Justice in our Madras High Court. My humble request to His Lordship is to consider the welfare of the advocates and pay attention to the Subordinate Judiciary by providing those with more amenities.
The Bar Council of Tamilnadu and Puducherry is providing maximum welfare measures to the legal fraternities. We have started coaching classes for the aspirants who are participating in the Judicial Examinations and several advocates have been appointed as Judicial Officers as well as the Law Officers of various fields. We have also taken multiple steps to increase the welfare fund and other schemes to the advocates. To encourage young advocates, we have also implemented the idea of providing stipend for the newly enrolled advocates and the Government is providing Rs.3,000/- per month to the new entrants for two years.
It is my duty to mention here that after the Covid-19 pandemic, the practice of advocates particularly in Subordinate Courts are affected and we can understand the mind of the new Chief Justice from his several judgments delivered in the Calcutta High Court considering the pandemic situations. Therefore, we are confident that His Lordship will take care of the interest of the legal fraternities practicing all over Tamilnadu and Puducherry. The Hon’ble Administrative Committee of the Madras High Court has taken decision to proceed to function Subordinate Courts with its full capacity allowing the physical hearing with an option to virtual hearing to the advocates subject to the Standard Operating Procedure to be followed in this regard with effect from 18.01.2021. The same method can be adopted to the Principal Bench of the Madras High Court and Bench at Maurai including the opening of chambers. Since, the Bar and Bench are two wheels of a chariot involved in dispensation of justice, I assure that the members of the Bar in the State of Tamilnadu and Puducherry will extent full support and co-operation to the new Chief Justice for the administration of justice and in all his endeavours to have speedy and quick dispensation of justice and to secure justice to all sections of people.
Once again I welcome the Hon’ble Chief Justice to this Chartered High Court.
Thanking you, one and all.
