The Madhya Pradesh High Court Administration issued an Order for the issuance of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) cards to Lawyers, Judicial Officers and Court Staff for entry into various Court Premises in the State.
As per the Order and Standard Operating Procedures issued by Madhya Pradesh High Court Registrar General R.K Vani said that these RFID Cards are to be pasted on the vehicles of the Lawyers, Court Staff and Judicial Officers for entry to the High Court’s Principal seat at Jabalpur, its Benches in Indore and Gwalior and District Courts across the State.
During the special committee meeting, chaired via video conferencing by Madhya Pradesh High Court’s Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq to look into the matter of security in Court, it was decided to issue the RFID cards.
The Court said, “The recent attack on an Undertrial inside Trial Court at Rohini in Delhi by two assailants dressed up as Lawyers is a harbinger of our worst nightmare coming true.”
The Order further said that electric vehicles of less than 250 Watt Power, which doesn’t require registration, do not qualify for RFID cards and shall not be permitted in Premises.
