The decision has come in the wake of several representations received from Bar Associations to consider all needy advocates irrespective of their standing at the Bar. It may be recalled the Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao has announced Rs25 Crores to the Advocates as a Covid relief only to be distributed to the needy among them under the supervision of Chief Justice of Telangana High Court. The government has subsequently released the amount to the Telangana Advocates Welfare Trust.
