Resolution by Circulation: Financial Support during Covid-19 Lockdown0
The magnitude of present National Crisis and Catastrophe, needs hardly to be emphasised. In such situations, we owe greater responsibility towards our fellow colleagues, who are facing hardship, to extend helping hand within our resources.
I am proud to say that, all members of Bar Council of Delhi, visualising the unforeseen crisis, have decided to begin with some financial help to mitigate, if not wholly, but to provide some respite. All of us are aware that the lawyers are not able to attend the court work, creating financial constraints, even to meet their daily requirements.
In this hour of crisis, we would request you and everyone to contribute generously and jointly take up the cause, so that we can provide more necessary help to our fellow colleagues and their families in Delhi and NCR, to overcome the hardship.
