The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval for creation of five posts of Additional Solicitors General, one each for the High Courts of Punjab & Haryana, Patna, Jharkhand, Karnataka and its Circuit Benches at Hubli-Dharwad & Gulbarga and Gujarat.

This decision will strengthen the litigation machinery to represent the Union of India (UOI) as a whole and specifically in the Punjab & Haryana High Court, Patna High Court, Jharkhand High Court at Ranchi, Karnataka High Court at Bangalore including its Circuit Benches and Gujarat High Court. This will also help in conduct of litigation on behalf of UOI efficiently and effectively.

The creation of these posts will also facilitate transaction of business in accordance with procedures and thus enable assigning of functions to legally trained persons. It will result in greater accountability of Government Departments to curb frivolous litigation and lessen the burden of Government cases in these Courts.

The proposal will also boost the morale of Government Department in following the rule of law and defending government policies and preventing high revenue pilferages.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today met former Australian Prime Minister The Hon Tony Abbott who is visiting India from 2-6 August 2021 in his capacity of Australian Prime Minister's Special Trade Envoy for India.

The two leaders discussed ways to further strengthen bilateral trade, investment and economic cooperation to realize the full potential of the India-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.

They emphasized that enhanced economic cooperation between India and Australia would help both countries better address the economic challenges emerging out of the COVID-19 pandemic, and would also help them in realising their shared vision of a stable, secure and prosperous Indo-Pacific region.

Prime Minister Modi expressed his satisfaction at the stellar growth of India-Australia ties in recent times and admired the important contributions of Prime Minister Morrison and Former Prime Minister Abbott in this journey.

Prime Minister also recalled his Virtual Summit last year with Prime Minister Morrison and reiterated his desire to be able to host PM Morrison in India as soon as conditions permit.

At the Leaders’ Virtual Summit held between Prime Minister Modi and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on 4 June 2020, the bilateral relationship was elevated to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, under which India and Australia committed, inter alia, to encourage expanded trade and investment flows for mutual benefit and decided to re-engage on a bilateral Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA). The present visit by The Hon Tony Abbott is reflective of this shared ambition.
