Dec 11, 2014 17:17 IST

The Union Cabinet on 10 December 2014 gave its approval for creation of five posts of Additional Solicitors General (ASG), one each for the High Courts of Punjab & Haryana, Patna, Jharkhand, Karnataka and its Circuit Benches at Hubli-Dharwad & Gulbarga and Gujarat.

The decision was made in a Cabinet meet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The decision will help in strengthening the litigation machinery to represent the Union Government efficiently and effectively as a whole and specifically in these courts.


These posts will facilitate transaction of business in accordance with procedures and thus enable assigning of functions to legally trained persons. This will result in greater accountability of Government Departments to curb frivolous litigation and lessen the burden of Government cases in these Courts.

It will also boost the morale of Government Department in following the rule of law and defending government policies and preventing high revenue pilferages.
