In a significant order, Allahabad High Court imposed a cost of Rs. 50000 on a party who sought an adjournment even though the Court was ready to hear the matter on merits.
Counsel for the party requested the Court to adjourn the case as it related to a young lawyer.
However, the Court remarked that they would adjourn the case, only if the advocate deposits the cost of Rs 50000 on or before 12.03.2021.
The Court listed the case on 12.03.2021 and clarified that the petitioner shall not be arrested until the next date of hearing.
