ABNORMALITY in Rs. 3.3 cr legal expense for 1500 hours consultancy in 10 months to INDIAN lawyer by N.R.I. Bar Counsel of Punjab & Haryana High court, it seems, is at odds with itself over the issue of dismissing a complaint against advocates Anil and Ranjit Singh Malhotra, both brothers practicing in Chandigarh. The NRI –USA couple were reportedly charged Rs. 3.3 crore in about nine months i.e. legal profession services, calculated hourly basis by providing 1500 hours between Jan – Oct 2013. The case under guardians and Wards Act, pending in Himachal Pradesh is in its initial stages. The Couple had claimed that they had to sell their house in the USA to pay the fee. The amount paid includes approximately Rs. 35 lakh on expenses and secondary lawyers and Rs. 2.5 crore was paid via traceable international bank transfers. THE CUSTODY FOR A CHILD APPEARS TO BE AN EMOTIONAL DECISION OF CONFLICT! THE PER HOUR LEGAL SERVICES IN ACTUAL FOR 1500 HOURS IN TEN MONTHS ARE TO BE TAKEN FOR 303 DAYS, HENCE CONSULTATION FOR ABOUT FIVE HOURS A DAY WITHOUT REST / OFF / HOLIDAYS.
