Jammu: After 27 days of strike, lawyers here on Saturday resumed their work following the J&K High Court order, putting on hold state government's decision of transferring powers of registration of documents from judiciary to executive.

The state High Court yesterday stayed the government order of transferring powers of land registration from judiciary to revenue department, and directed the striking lawyers who were opposing the move to resume normal work.

The decision to call off the strike was taken by the Bar Association of Jammu (BAJ) in view of the stay given by the High Court, which also asked us to commence work, president of the association said.

"We have suspended the strike and resumed normal work in the courts from today. This decision was taken at general house meeting here this morning," BAJ president BS Salathia told reporters here this afternoon.

BAJ president further said that talks with government will take place on one side and case is now also under review of the High Court.
