Maharashtra lower court staff on indefinite strike from today

 Around 40,000 staff of lower courts statewide will go on an indefinite strike from Tuesday in protest against non-implementation of a Supreme Court order directing the state government to grant them a pay hike.

"We have been working extra hours but haven't got anything in return. This is injustice," a court clerk said.
The staff had gone on a day's strike in November, crippling courts.
While the city sessions court in south Mumbai wore a deserted look with all courts shut and judges leaving for home soon after the lunch session, some metropolitan magistrate courts adjourned cases on Monday.
The employees are demanding a pay hike and extension of benefits of the Second National Judicial Pay Commission (SNJPC) of Justice E Padmanabhan to court staff.
They had decided to go on an indefinite strike in February, but received a letter from the Bombay HC stating that the matter would be placed before Mantralaya in March.
"Six months have passed and nothing has been done," a judicial staff member said on Monday.
