Senior Advocate and President of the Supreme Court Bar Association, Dushyant Dave, has written to the Indian Army offering the services of Supreme Court lawyers to Indian Army personnel.

Families of soldiers serving in forward posts and border areas “lose day-to-day contact with the families to address and resolve various issues including legal issues affecting their lives”, Dave writes in his letter.

Dave correctly highlights the disappointment and frustration often felt by soldiers when they find themselves unable to assist their families.

A situation like this could also affect the morale of a soldier serving in the forward posts.

And Mr. Dave seems to have a solution in the form of a voluntary programme on the lines the Army already has, when leading Bollywood stars are taken to the forward areas for entertainment and motivation.
This, Dave suggests, “will help in actually addressing the legal problems being faced by your men and women and will naturally help in removing their frustration and then achieving the higher morale.”

I feel that if we could on our part request some of the country’s top lawyers to visit forward areas on an agreed programme to interact with your men (and women), they can get the best legal advice right there in interactions. Subsequently, with the help of our Legal Cells in various High Courts and District Courts, follow up actions could be taken by us by creating some kind of mechanism.
- Dave in his letter to the Army.
