After some ground work (Representation to Registrar and RTIs to Home Department), got the PIL filed into AP High Court.
Here is the copy of WP(PIL) No. 142 of 2023 petition…2023-09-12 WP(PIL) for A4 Paper usage v0.1
It was listed on 21/09/2022 and miraculously, I got to speak nothing but still I am happy because…
CJ to GP for Home: What is the difficulty in issuing the gazette notification for so long?
GP for Home: I need time to seek instruction.
CJ to GP for Home: Granting 2 weeks time. Listed for 04/10/2023
After around 2 more weeks from previous date of listing… today (18/10/2023) I appeared before Court-1 since it was miraculously listed. I learnt later that, Wednesdays are for PILs.
Waited until 3.15PM but my case did not come up for hearing.
By the time I reached home, I was in for a pleasant surprise. The following Circular was issued on same date, for usage of A4 size paper (both sides printing) in all District Courts and Forums, but this is effective from 20-12-2023 (don’t know why, because TS HC passed similar circular with immediate effect!).2023-10-18 ROC 502 Circular - A4 papers usage (both sides) in District Courts
