Need of THE HOUR... 

Holidays for Madras and Madurai High Courts in 2018

A year consists of 365 days. Do you know the number of holidays the Madras and Madurai High Courts have notified for year 2018?!

1 Summer vacation : 34 days
2. Dussehra vacation. :. 9 days
3 Christmas Vacation. :. 10 days

4 Sat and Sundays :. 103 days
(1 Sat working)
5 Declared Holidays. :. 21 days

Total:. 177 days

(Note: 6 festivals fall on Sat/Sun so not shown in above list. Otherwise total will become 185 days)

a Summer (34 days) in April was originally given when all Judges were British. They could not tolerate the scorching sun and headed off to Hill stations to cool off.

Today our Judges, like the rest of us, can take vacations in turns, no need to close HC for 34 days

b Why have Dushera (10 days)? Like the rest of us take 3 days

c Christmas (9 days) was allowed when British Christians were Judges. Now let us have 2 days like the rest of us.

d Why Sat and Sun need to be holidays? Like Banks etc let alternate Sat be working day.

Working at 50% capacity, along with numerous adjournments, no wonder our judiciary system is tottering!!
