HC calls for educating people about post lockdown challenges

HC 1

JAMMU, MAY 7:  Jammu and Kashmir High Court has asked the authorities to prepare the public for the permissible conduct upon removal of the restrictions either partial or complete.

A Division Bench of the High Court has issued a string of instruction while hearing two Public Interest Litigations (PIL)s on COVID-19 pandemic.


The High Court has called for starting widespread dissemination of the information about the permissible conduct upon removal of the restrictions; progression of COVID-19 virus infection and life of virus; possibility of carriers existing and infecting despite the lockdown and all related information, using all mediums as are available.

In line with the directions of the High Court, J&K SLSA has impressed upon the administration to take into consideration the availability of the PLVs in the effort towards mitigation of COVID-19.

The JKSLA has offered its cooperation in the awareness campaign through its Para Legal Volunteers (PLV) network. 

It has suggested that all the PLVs would work in close coordination with the Department of Information as and when required.
