Safeguard govt’s interest in court cases: Cab Secy

A system needs to be put in place so that legal cases are regularly monitored and the interests of the government are properly safeguarded before the courts, Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth has said.

In a demi-official note, Seth has pointed out that in many litigation cases pending before various courts, where the Union of India is either the petitioner or the respondent, government interest is not being defended with adequate diligence.

The Cabinet Secretary has, therefore, emphasised the need to put a system in place so that the cases are regularly monitored and the interests of the government are properly safeguarded before the courts of law.

As per the existing norms, a unified stand should be adopted instead of bringing out each ministry or department’s point of view in the reply.
