Most of the order sheets mention the strike of lawyers. The court termed it as a tragedy for the state, especially the revenue courts.

The court said that the lawyers are on strike by taking fees from the litigants, on the other hand, they are filing petitions in the High Court for the hearing of the case within the stipulated period. The court refused to grant relief and said that if the order was given, the officers would fear contempt if the order was not followed due to the strike. That will put pressure on the court.

The court said that the big question is who will benefit from this? At the same time, lawyers, who are taking work fees, but not working, are going on strike and increasing the litigation.
