Srinagar: Kashmir High Court Bar Association
on Saturday decided to observe a one-day strike on Monday to press
its demand for rollback of Jammu and Kashmir government`s
order of transferring land registration work from judiciary to
revenue department.

"It was decided that lawyers will boycott courts in the
Valley on Monday to protest the government`s move to transfer
the registration powers from civil courts to revenue
authorities," the Association`s general secretary G N Shaeen
said after a meeting of the lawyers` body here.

The government move is unacceptable to the Bar
Association, he said.
