buildings where nobody lives because they’re too expensive to afford But the city has an eternal quality which I think comes down to the people In all the years that I have been taking photos here I

Mumbai | Published: September 2 2017 7:26 pm Bombay High Court (Files) Top News Irked by the “lackadaisical response” of the BMC lawyers in “several important” cases the Bombay High Court has directed the civic body to explain the logic it employs for leaving these cases to “not-so-capable” advocates while engaging services of “senior counsel for petty matters” The court directed Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner Ajoy Mehta to file an affidavit on the issue by September 7 this year A bench of Justices BR Gavai and MS Karnik said that considering that the corporation pays these lawyers using funds from the “public exchequer” it owes an explanation to the court and to the public for leaving the “important cases to not-so-capable lawyers” “There is no doubt that it is the sweet choice of a litigant to engage whichever lawyer it wants to However the BMC runs on the money that it receives from the public exchequer It ultimately spends the tax payers’ money” the bench said “Therefore we direct the BMC to personally file an affidavit explaining the logic behind the corporation’s policy to engage senior counsel for petty matters and leaving the important matters to those lawyers who are on its payroll” it said The bench also directed the BMC Commissioner to explain in the affidavit why “there is always an inordinate delay on part of the corporation when it comes to submitting its replies and affidavits in cases where it is a party” It warned that if it finds the explanations in the affidavit to be “unsatisfactory” it will be “constrained to summon the BMC Commissioner to court” The directions came while the court was hearing a petition filed by a real estate developer challenging an adverse order of the National Green Tribunal Not only had the Corporation delayed filing its reply in the case but its lawyer also failed to satisfy the court’s queries on the Union government’s policies and environmental rules relevant to the case “We are taking judicial notice of some old newspaper reports that say that the BMC spends hundreds of crores on legal fees paid to senior lawyers We have also noticed that even in petty matters concerning demolition of unauthorised structures the services of senior lawyers are engaged “However in cases like the present that involve complicated issues interpretation of laws and so we find that BMC is being defended by a lawyer who is an employee of the corporation “We fail to appreciate the rationale behind leaving important matters that have bearings on the fate of many to the mercy of a lawyer who is not equipped to meet the challenges raised by the other side” the bench said For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsDehradun: On Saturday the Uttarakhand BJP
