Mysuru: The Mysuru Bar Association members boycotted the court proceedings on Wednesday July 27 and took out a protest rally from the Gandhi ‘s bust located in front of the Law Court’s Complex at Krishnaraja Boulevard to the Mysuru Deputy Commissioner’s office, demanding withdrawal of the notification for an amendment to Rule 9 of the Karnataka Birth and Death Registration Act.

As per the existing law, the power of dealing with cases pertaining to birth and death registration is vested with the judiciary. Now, the amendment to Rule 9 seeks to hand over the power to the Assistant Commissioners of Revenue Sub-Divisions.

The advocates said that this notification has to be withdrawn as people who are aggrieved in the cases pertaining to the registration of birth/death approach courts as they have faith in the judiciary rather than the executive. Hence, the judiciary should continue to deal with such cases, they said.

MBA President M. Mahadevaswamy, Vice President Puttasidde Gowda, Treasurer H. S Mahadevaswamy, Joint Secretary Nagesh G. M., Secretary Umesh S., Women’s Joint Secretary Bhagyamma B. S. and others took part in the protest.

Later, the MBA members submitted a memorandum to the Government through the Deputy Commissioner.
