Earlier, the Allahabad High Court on Wednesday similarly stayed the formation of the Education Tribunal without the permission of the court.
- A bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Rituraj Awasthi passed the order on the PIL of Awadh Bar Association
The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has on Thursday imposed an interim stay on the formation of the GST Tribunal without its permission. The order was passed by a bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Rituraj Awasthi on the PIL of the Awadh Bar Association. It said that the Central Government and the GST Council would have to seek the permission of the High Court to constitute a tribunal. The next hearing of the case will be on 15 March.
Earlier in the Allahabad High Court, a bench headed by Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice MS Shamsherry passed a similar order on 3 March regarding the formation of the Education Tribunal that it would not be formed without its permission.
Wrangle between advocates of Lucknow and Prayagraj
Additional Solicitor General Shashi Prakash Singh told the bench that the Center and the GST Council have decided to file SLP in the Supreme Court against an order dated 9 February 2021 of the Allahabad High Court. With this order, the Allahabad High Court ordered the GST Council to be set up in Prayagraj within the time limit.
On the petition of the Awadh Bar Association, its president and senior advocate HGS Parihar and other senior advocates JN Mathur and LP Mishra argued that earlier the GST Council had decided to set up an Appellate Tribunal in Lucknow. But later changed his decision which is wrong without any basis and sheer. He said that this was done by a bench of Allahabad High Court after being repeatedly harassed by the GST officials. It was said that the tribunals will be facilitated by the formation of a tribunal in Lucknow.
There… the protests of the advocates continue
Explain that Allahabad’s lawyers always oppose the extension of jurisdiction of Lucknow bench and the formation of new tribunals in the state capital. At the same time, the advocates of Lucknow are determined to fight the battle on this issue. In this sequence, the boycott of judicial work going on since 24 February has been increased. Advocates will continue their sit-in demonstration on Friday under the leadership of Chairman HGS Parihar, while avoiding judicial work. General Minister Sharad Pathak told that on March 6, Bar Association of nearby districts has been invited, which is being sought to be linked with Lucknow Bench.
