The government has no proposal under consideration to regulate the fees charged by lawyers, Rajya Sabha was told through a written reply on Monday available today.
'No such proposal is under consideration of the government,' Law and Justice Minister M Veerappa Moily said, answering Congress member from Andhra Pradesh Raashid Alvi.
The member had asked whether the 'government is considering to regulate the fees charged by the lawyers' and whether India's judicial system needed reform to provide justice to everyone.
Dr Moily cited such steps as limiting adjournments to three or increasing judges' strength in High Courts and Supreme Courts.
He said the government has decided 'in principle' to set up a National Mission for Justice Delivery and Legal Reforms to reduce the period of pendency in courts from an average of 15 years to three years by 2012.
