Allahabad HC orders to be available in Hindi from Jan

Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court orders will from January 1, 2019 be available to petitioners in Hindi as well, an official said on Tuesday.

The Hindi version would be available to petitioners on demand at a minimal fee.

To ensure this facility, the administrative wing of the court would be appointing translators.

The official said the decision would go a long way in helping people who cannot understand the orders due to a language barrier.

The decision was taken by an administrative committee of senior High Court judges.
