Advocates protest against amendment to Registration of Births and Deaths Act

July 28, 2022

Mysore/Mysuru: Strongly opposing the amendments to The Registration of Births and Deaths Act, Advocates under the banner of Mysore Bar Association boycotted Court proceedings and staged a demonstration in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s (DC) office here yesterday.

Arguing that the amendments seek to keep JMFC (Judicial Magistrate First Class) Courts out of the purview of deciding issues concerning births and deaths and wrest the powers with Assistant Commissioner’s (AC) Court on deciding births and deaths registration disputes or issues, the Advocates contended that the issues, which hitherto used to be decided at Taluk-level, will now be decided in the AC Court at the District headquarters, which will be  of great inconvenience to Advocates and the public.

Urging the Government to bring back the old practice, they demanded establishment of  exclusive Revenue Courts and to appoint retired District Judges for taking up cases.

The Advocates submitted a memorandum seeking to restore the powers back with JMFC Courts for redressal of births and deaths registration issues and thus avoid inconvenience to the general public and as well as to Advocates.

Earlier, the Advocates marched in a procession from the District Courts Complex to the DC’s office.

Mysore Bar Association President M. Mahadevaswamy, Vice-President Puttasiddegowda, office-bearers S. Mahadevaswamy, G.M. Nagesh, B.S. Bhagyamma and others were present.
