>govt to appoint 2,000 law officers thru’ PSC

>THE newly established Government Attorney Department has taken initiatives to recruit about 2,000 law officers for conducting cases in the courts including the apex court on behalf of the state, Ashutosh Sarkar writes.
This is the first time in the country’s history that law officers are going to be recruited through the Public Service Commission (PSC).
The attorney department has earlier been set up under the Government Attorney Service Ordinance, 2008 for dealing with cases in courts and performing other duties on behalf of the state.
The department has recently put forward a proposal of recruiting 197 law officers (attorneys) for the Supreme Court and 1,799 others for the subordinate courts to be approved by the ministries concerned.
Sources say the department has proposed to appoint five additional attorney generals, 96 deputy attorney generals and 96 assistant attorney generals for the SC and 79 district attorneys, 280 additional district attorneys, 480 joint district attorneys and 960 assistant district attorneys for the district courts.
Most of the existing attorneys would lose their jobs once the recruitment is completed, the sources add.
