The Supreme Court of India has given a green light to the legal process for the legalisation of street legal forms and legal remedies brewing in all parts of the country, after it heard an appeal by a lawyer representing a young woman.
The Supreme Court heard the case on Thursday and ordered the Delhi government to submit a report on the impact of the new legal form and legal remedy on the rights of citizens.
The court said the Supreme Court is of the view that there is a need for an immediate and robust law on the issue.
The new legal forms are not intended to be the first step in the legal regime, but the process to regulate them will be long and complex, the court said.
The court directed the government to provide a detailed report on its implementation, and also said the government can appeal to the Supreme Supreme Court to make a final order on the matter.
The move was made following a legal case filed by a young girl, who has sought to register a complaint against the government in the Supreme Courts in several cities and other local bodies.
The girl had claimed that the new forms are discriminatory against women and other minorities.
“The form does not require any details or even the name of the woman or the caste she belongs to, and it does not have any provisions for protection of privacy or identity.
It does not even allow any kind of address, and no address or details of any kind are provided at the time of registering the complaint,” the girl had said in her petition.
The woman’s plea has been rejected by the Delhi High Court.
The Delhi High Commission had rejected the woman’s petition last month, saying that it was based on the wrong approach of trying to regulate a social problem and failing to deal with it.
The High Court had also directed the Delhi Government to submit its report within two months.
The Delhi High Commissioner in the National Capital Territory has also been asked to submit the report within 30 days.
The petition has been filed by the activist Shabnam Jafri and her mother Ritu Jafre.
The lawyer representing the girl, Nandini Kumar, had sought a direction from the Supreme Government to take legal action to register the complaint in the courts and also directed her to provide details of the registration.
“The petitioners are seeking a court order that the government takes the necessary action to regulate and to protect the rights and dignity of the citizens of the nation, and not to regulate the rights to form and to form an association and to be able to establish a legal form of organisation and legal form,” the lawyer said.
“There is no such thing as a legal remedy for street legal form.
The government must take the necessary steps to regulate street legal and legal forms.
The form is only a tool for a law.
We have been seeking for the creation of a legal instrument for this purpose for a long time,” Kumar had said.
