Palaniswami on Wednesday (28th October) at an event, launched the lawyers’ stipend scheme for young graduates by presenting nine young lawyers with a stipend of ₹3,000 per month for two years.Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, Law Minister CVe Shanmugam, Chief Secretary K Shanmugam, and senior officials were present on the occasion. The scheme aims to provide Rs.3,000 per month as assistance for young law graduates who hail from economically poor backgrounds during the initial years of their careers.As per the report of The New Indian Express, the new scheme of the Government of Tamil Nadu will benefit the law students hailing from economically poor backgrounds in rural areas, where, it takes at least three or four years to become full-fledged advocates. “During this period, many are under poverty, and a few move to some other professions unable to stabilise themselves as advocates. Now, this special scheme will help those advocates,” the release adds. An per the official release of the State Government, the scheme aims to help those young advocates, who have just passed out of their colleges, and are required to clear the All India Bar Examination to get themselves permanent registration in the Bar Council. It may be noted that in July 2020, the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry had informed that the Chief Minister of the State has sanctioned a monthly stipend of Rs.3,000/- for a period of two years to the young Advocates who are practicing in the state.”The timely help to the young Advocates will go to long way in ensuring that the standards of Advocates stays high and as a directive result, Tamilnadu will be able to produce great Advocates and eminent jurists in future,” the Bar Council Chairman PS Amalraj had said.It had earlier submitted a memorandum before the Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami urging him to grant monthly stipend of `5,000 per month to the newly enrolled junior lawyers.It may be noted that in 2018, the Government of Kerala had approved stipend for junior lawyers. Lawyers aged less than 30 and having less than three years of practise, with annual income less than Rs. 1 lakh are entitled to stipend. The stipend amount is Rs. 5,000 per month. Recently, the Kerala High Court pulled up the State Bar Council for “grave delay” in implementation of 2018 Government order.Earlier this year, Bar Council of India had written a letter to Prime Minister and Chief Ministers of all States with a request to provide a minimum sum of Rs. 20,000/- per month as subsistence allowance to young lawyers, specifically those who are not financially well/needy in view of the lockdown imposed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.Click Here To Download Notification[Read Notification]Next Storylast_img

International news: senator attempts to block overseas staff talks

first_img Comments are closed. The US Senate majority leader Trent Lott has attempted to block the debate on a Bill which would increase the number of highly-skilled foreign workers employed in the country. The Bill would increase the cap on special H-1B visas, which allow skilled workers from overseas into the US, from 115,000 to 195,000. If Congress takes no action on the issue the cap will fall to 107,500 in 2001 and then to 65,000 in 2002. Employees may be holding £7bn of bondsPersonnel professionals in the US have been instructed to encourage employees at their organisations to redeem more than $7bn worth of US Savings Bonds – the traditional way to save money in the US. Mack Stamper, the US treasury’s manager of labour and national associations, said many workers could unknowingly be holding bonds that were bought for them as presents when they were born 30 to 40 years ago.Alternative transport day helps save energyEmployees were encouraged to travel to work by alternative means last week as part of a Europe-wide alternative transport day. Car sharing and other energy-saving measures were promoted on 22 September, which has been designated every year as a day promoting transport methods other than the car. Participating cities piloted car sharing schemes, new public transport routes and other pollution-busting transport policies.Knowledge management focus for joint ventureSpanish e-commerce company Terra Networks has joined with HR software company Meta4 to produce interactive HR software focusing on knowledge management.

RADS struggle through bad economic climate

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. This year’s entries to the Recruitment Advertising Awards reflect the toughtime the economy has endured.  PennyWilson reportsThe economic climate has had agencies holding their breath and recruiterszipping up their wallets for the past year. And the patchy economy has been reflected in the shortlist for theRecruitment Advertising Awards (RADS), designed to showcase excellence inrecruitment, marketing and communications. This year, it has attracted morethan 600 entries. John Langford, chairman of recruitment advertising agency TCS, and of the15-strong judging team, said: “It’s been a hard year. Many of this year’sbest campaigns are still sitting as concepts on cardboard in ad agencies,because employers just don’t have the money to go ahead with them yet. Themediocrity we saw in some entries could be a reflection of this year’sbudgetary constraints. Some categories proved a real struggle.” However, there is brighter news ahead. Langford said he believed recruitmentadvertising would increase by about 10 per cent in 2004. “The big questionis, what is going to drive growth and demand over the next few years?” He predicted the telecoms sector should bounce back from the brink, bringingwith it job opportunities. “Even if it over-committed itself [in thepast], it still has energy. Brands will develop and grow.” Meanwhile, judge Manda Crowder, managing director of AND Advertising,predicted retail’s strength would continue to hold out, while the hospitalityand leisure industries would boost employment, despite vulnerability to worldevents, such as terrorist attacks. “These are all high staff turnoverindustries, and they will expand,” she said. Fellow judge Neil Griffiths, creative director of Bernard Hodes, agreedthere were early signs of recruitment advertising budgets loosening. “Moreclients are now asking for project work – employer branding and recruitmentacross a range of media,” he said. “The private sector has started tocome alive, not least telecoms.” Still, judges agreed, the recruitment advertising entries displayed adistinct “lack of employer risk”. Ads were either really good, ormassively bad, with the gulf between them wider than it had ever been.”Good ideas, but the creative execution didn’t do them justice,” saidSue Redden, research director at recruitment agency Thirty Three.”Innovation was missing, and too many missed good opportunities,”said Jane Robson, director of Courtenay HR. Martin Tiplady, HR director, Metropolitan Police Service said many of theads were going nowhere and had become complacent. “I don’t think this is a sign of a depressed market,” he said.”What it illustrates is that it is becoming harder to distinguish betweenone advertising agency and another. When you buy into an ad agency [as anemployer/ recruiter], you buy into their ideas. Yet I don’t think we’re gettingthe full benefit of their knowledge. “Also, it shows employers are now looking towards other forms ofrecruitment advertising that are not necessarily paper-based, such as the web.And finally, it shows a market crying out for something different – recruitmentagencies offering something different. It needs a breath of fresh air.” RADS winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 15 January 2004 at theGrosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London. For tickets call Mike White on 020 8652 3100 or Christine Jones on 0208652 3849. www.radawards.com Comments are closed.
