‘This decision is of great relief for students, who disappointed over the prolonged inaction of BCI were about to file a writ petition in Punjab and Haryana High Court’ he said. He further added that decision to take resort to legal remedies is withheld for the time being and students are waiting for official communication regarding decision to implement Punjabi.
Parmjeet Singh Gazi further added that he had contacted Dr. Venit Bernard Coutinho, BCI’s Director Legal Education, who assured that a decision would soon be communicated to the Sikh Students Federation. Dr. Coutinho has conveyed congratulations to Punjabi students for their efforts to get recognition for their language.
Punjabi is official language of the State and work of lower Courts is also conducted in it. Punjabi University is the sole institution that imparts legal education in Punjabi language. SSF has demanded that other institutions of legal education including GNDU (Amritsar) and Punjab University, Chandigarh should also recognize Punjabi as an optional medium of instruction for imparting legal education.
