Lawyers protest professional tax

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, NOV. 18. Lawyers of all bar associations across the Capital today observed a daylong strike against the proposed imposition of a "professional tax" by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). As a result, all lawyers abstained from work at the Tis Hazari, Patiala House and Karkardooma courts and the Debt Recovery Tribunal. However, bail matters and other urgent proceedings went on uninterrupted.

Threatening to intensify their agitation with help from other professionals and government employees if the proposal was not withdrawn within a week, the Co-ordination Committee of All Bar Associations of Delhi has alleged that the proposed tax was "illegal and arbitrary". They sent a memorandum to the Delhi Chief Minister, Sheila Dikshit, asking her to ensure that the proposal was withdrawn.
