Gehlot clear Housing Scheme for lawyers in Rajasthan

Rajasthan Chief minister (CM) Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday gives green signal to a group housing scheme for advocates in all districts for lawyers, which was a long-pending demand. Practicing advocates, registered in Bar Council of Rajasthan and are natives of the state, would be eligible for the Group Housing Building Societies in all districts. The advocates should have a minimum practice period of one year in state courts or in courts of other states and their annual income should be up to Rs 5 lakh. The housing policy will pacify a large group of advocates in the state, who have been demanding this for a long time and had agitated on several occasions.
