There should be a High Court Bench in Pune. We have been asking for this since 1978. One can clearly notice that high pendency makes this a need of the day. This is not merely desirable to the advocates who protested for the cause, but it is the need of the people, the requirement of all the residents of Pune and we proudly represent them all.


1. The object of implementing Force Majure clause (FMC), (expressed in an agreement or contract), is not forbidden by law, neither it is of such nature that, if permitted, it would defeat the provision of any law, or is fraudulent or opposed to public policy. Hence FMC in any contract, expressed, is lawful. Hence Force Majure (FM) events include an act of God or natural disasters, strikes, epidemics, pandemics, etc. FM is an exception to what would otherwise amount to a breach of contract. Hence contracts with FMC come within the category of Contracts contingent on an event happening or not happening, and governed U/S 32 onwards, Chapter III, and Chapter IV of the Contract Act, 1872 (i.e. until S. 56 of the Contract Act, 1872). Hence from the said provisions it can be seen that FMC cannot be implied and must be expressly agreed upon under the contract executed.

2. What happens if FMC is not expressly agreed upon in the contract. If the contract does not include FMC, then the aggrieved party can claim relief U/S 56 of the Contract Act 1872, (Doctrine of Frustration), which deals with agreements to do impossible acts, and termed in itself as void. Allocation and assumption of risk is not simply a matter of express or implied provision but may also depend on less defined matters such as the contemplation of parties, and the application of doctrine can be a difficult one. In such circumstances, test of radically different is important and that the doctrine is not to be lightly invoked. Mere incidence of expenses or delay or onerousness is not sufficient, and that there has to be as it were a break in identity between contract as provided for and contemplated and its performance in the new circumstances. The said observations and ratio was laid down by the Hon’ble Apex Court in Energy Watchdog Vs CERC (2017) 14 SCC 80. Hence the said doctrine is applicable at 2 instances, when the object of a contract becomes impossible to execute or when any unforeseen event occurs which is beyond the control of the aggrieved or affected party. Thus the said doctrine plays vital roles in non fulfillment of performance of contracts.

3. It is submitted that the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID 19 as a pandemic on 11/03/2020. Admittedly Lockdown was implemented by the Hon’ble Prime Minister from 23/03/2020, and extended from time to time, due to said pandemic Covid-19. From 01/06/2020 until 30/06/2020, fresh guidelines were issued by MHA. In Pune city the lock down had been withdrawn partially w.e. from 08/06/2020, except in containment zones. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare advised that mass gatherings be avoided or possibly postponed till the disease is contained. Hence any sort of disruption in any supply chains, transportation, services, distribution of goods, due to spread of Corona Virus is covered under FMC, and the same may be invoked, wherever considered appropriate whether or not expressed in the contract. As a result in pursuance of lockdown, Limitations have been placed on the movement of men and material under the provisions of Disaster Management Act, 2005, and the respective State and UT Governments, from time to time, have severely affected the volume of vehicular traffic. In such situation, considering the extra ordinary events or circumstances, beyond human control, leading to delays in or non fulfillment of contractual obligations, and such period of contract during lockdown implemented which may have become unremunerative, and therefore it is at the discretion of the parties to the contract, thereby allowing flexibility, to invoke FMC following prescribed due procedure, and which may be decided based on the specific circumstances of the case, and taking into consideration the period.

4. It is now well settled that clause in the agreement even if expressed cannot override the law embodied in the Acts, governing such agreements. The Government has issued orders under the Disaster Management Act, 2005, (more specific U/S 69 of the said Act), and the said order shall prevail over any such agreements executed between the Board and Contractor, and although FMC is not expressed in the contract between the order issued by Government will prevail over the agreement. Thus the Government has issued an order U/S 69 of the DM Act, 2005, delegating its power U/S 10 of the said Act, to Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, to enhance the preparedness and containment of COVID 19 etc.

5. Hence in my considered opinion concession/waiver to the Contractor/Aggrieved Party specially when there is no express clause of waiver/force majure in the Agreement or contract, can be granted taking into consideration, other facts and circumstances.

about us

What more does a mentor want from his subordinates, besides the love and gratitude that he is gifted. One of my juniors wrote this to me today…

“Picture this – busy day at court, two extensive witness examinations, and two extensive arguments. Only a practising professional will know what such a day brings to their mind. So the other day, while I was gearing myself up to race against time, I watched someone with great admiration, preparing in silence. What happened during the rest of the morning, indeed made be believe that it was the silence before the storm. This individual displayed such proficiency at the courtroom, I almost had a jaw-dropping reaction to his piercing voice and words of wit and knowledge, combined so well, it held the interest of the deciding Authorities until the end. Moreover it came to me as a major astonishment, as I kept wondering how can any human brain switch subjects so fast and be as confident as a fearless lion! I am still trying to figure out how does his brain work, what kind of superlative degree of skills and expertise does he have and where does he get it from. Are genes playing on him or is it perseverance.. probably both, and many other factors that juniors like us cannot even comprehend. He went back to back into three different subjects and situations, with no breaks in between, with such readiness and never paused or shivered even for a moment, and surprisingly kept his temper unaffected. (Put me in a situation like this, I would erupt into a mess of anger and no work would ever be accomplished!!) He didn’t seem to require to refer to any of his notes and maneuvered so effortlessly from one courtroom to the other with something that felt like a powerfully upgraded computer software installed in his head. Nevertheless his charm remained undeterred, catching multiple attentions together, and no matter how much pressure he was put through, he remained so focussed. Even achieving a small portion of such vibrant traits of this professionally and intellectually armed person may make me such a confident person. Mere observance of him is such an influence, it can carry me away, and inspires me to copy him. He is not just my senior, he is a learning, he is an overall subject in himself, so well polished and refined, an outcome of great devotion and rigorous exposure to the most hostile situations. He is the one from whom I have to discover, identify and understand so many features and naturally the respect and love always builds while I watch his incessant compassion towards his profession. What I saw that day was fantastic, hats off to this powerful and robust intellectual human, who poses such poise and does it with all ease! I sincerely appreciate, in fact I am awestruck with what I saw.. marvellous…I take pride with all gratitude in learning more from you Sir, my professional journey with you is a very versatile experience for which each aspect of me shall always remain so thankful to you..

On this occasion of Guru Pournima, Sir, it is my sincere thanks to you, for being there for us, for being so patient and so gracious. Our greatest strength is the belief that you show in us. What more can a subordinate want from his Mentor? Words will always fall short for the overwhelming feelings of gratitude and respect that bonds us so intensely!

Lots of Best Wishes and Great Luck to you Sir! God bless!!”

I sincerely thank each one of you for showing your sincere gratitude and kind gestures. It made my day so special, I will be ever so grateful and proud of you for performing so well professionally as well as have groomed into being such good people.

Law and justice are of supreme importance in any society, because, whatever the level of economic development, if there is no justice, fairness and rule of law, there will be dissatisfaction, oppression and anarchy. In India, the Constitution guarantees protection of life, property and personal liberty to the people and provides safeguards against deprivation thereof by any individual, body or state.

The adoption of the Constitution on 26 January 1950 did not disturb the existing structure of courts for dispensation of justice. The uniformity of judicial structure was preserved by placing criminal law and procedure, succession, will, contracts, registration of documents, etc. in the Concurrent List.

The Indian law and justice is based on the firm foundation of several sources like the Constitution, statutes, case law and customary law. Besides, there are rules, regulations and bye- laws. The judicial decisions of superior courts like Supreme Court and High Courts are also important sources of law. Local customs and conventions which are not against the principles of morality are duly taken into account by courts while administering justice.

The judicial system in India is headed by the Supreme Court. Then there are High Courts for each state or group of states. They are followed by a hierarchy of subordinate courts. The Panchayat courts also function in some states under various names such as Nyaya Panchayat, Gram Kachehri and Panchayat Adalat to settle civil and criminal disputes of petty and local nature. Different state laws govern the jurisdiction of these courts.

Each state is divided into judicial districts headed by a district and session judge who is the principal civil authority of original jurisdiction. He can try all offences including those punishable with death or life imprisonment. Below him, there are courts of civil jurisdiction known in different states as munsifs, sub- judges and civil judges. The criminal judiciary is comprised of chief judicial magistrate and judicial magistrate of first and second class.

The Supreme Court of India consists of 26 judges including the Chief Justice of India. The judges hold office until they attain the age of 65 years. The judicial administration of each State or a group of states is headed by a respective High Court.

Each High Court comprises a Chief Justice and such other judges as the President of India may, from time to time appoint. There is uniformity in the structure and functions of subordinate courts throughout India. The designations of respective courts connote their functions. They deal with the disputes of civil and criminal nature as per powers conferred upon them. These courts derive principally from the two important codes prescribing procedures, i.e. Code of Civil Procedure, 1908, and Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.

It is often said that justice delayed is justice denied. In India, the settlement of cases takes a long time. Many cases are not decided even after decades. Sometimes the plaintiff or the respondent dies before the cases are decided defeating the very purpose for which the case was filed.

There are several reasons for such a delayed justice in our country. The number of judges is woefully short of the requirement as a result of which the number of cases go on piling in various courts. Many vacancies lie unfulfilled because of bureaucracy and bottlenecks. The judges take their own time in deciding each case because there is no time pressure on them lack of concrete proof on evidence, changes of stances by witnesses, corruption, etc. are some other reasons that cause delay in meting out justice. There is a huge pendency even in superior courts, viz. Supreme Court and the High Courts.

The Eleventh Finance Commission recommended the setting up of Fast Track Courts. These courts take up session cases pending for two years or more, and the cases of under trials in jails. The Commission had given a grant of over Rs 700 crore for setting up nearly two thousand Fast Track Courts. Nearly four lakhs pending cases were transferred to these courts.

Getting justice is not only time consuming but also an expensive affair. The court fee, the advocate’s charges and frequent visits to the courts involve heavy expenditure. There is also inherent exploitation in the system. The advocates deliberately make the cases linger on for years to ensure their fee for longer durations.

In a country like India where a large section of the population lives in extreme poverty, justice for all is still a dream. The literacy rate being low, the litigants are exploited in various ways.

However, efforts are under way to bring law and justice within the access of poor people. The Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987, as amended in 1994 and 2002, aims at establishing a nation-wide network for providing free and competent legal aid to the poor and weaker sections as per the provisions of Article 39A of the Constitution. In order to implement and monitor legal aid programmes in the country, the National Legal Services Authority (NLSA) has been set up. There are also Supreme Court Legal Services Committee, and High Court Legal Services Committees in each High Court to provide free legal aid to the eligible persons.

Other steps taken by the government are: setting up of vibrant legal aids programmes, promotion of legal literacy, establishing the legal aid clinics in universities and law colleges, training the para-legal personnel, holding the legal aid camps and look adalats, etc.

An amazing number of cases-running into several lakhs have been settled in look adalats. Motor vehicle accident claim cases involving compensation with several thousand crore rupees have been settled. Lakhs of people have benefited from these lokal adalats which have been given the status of civil courts.

The Family Courts Act, 1984 aims at the speedy settlement of disputes relating to marriages and family affairs, etc. These courts are set up in a city or town with a population of over 10 lakhs and at such other places as the State Government deems necessary.

The Parliamentary Committee on Empowerment of Women has recommended the setting up of one Family Court in each district of the country. India is a country inhabited by people of different religious and faiths governed by different sets of personal laws in matters relating to marriage, divorce, succession, adoption, maintenance, etc. There are separate and elaborate laws on each of these issues whereby people get redressal and settlement of their disputes.

There are several law enforcement agencies like the Police, Central Bureau of Investigation, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, Border Security Force, National Security Guards, Assam Rifles, Central Reserve Police Force, Rapid Action Force, etc. They play an important role in maintaining law and order in the country, checking infiltration and cross border crimes, investigating crimes and establishing peace and security. With such elaborate structure of laws and enforcing institutions, law and justice in India is safe and secure.
