KAT member Mathew C Kunnumkal, Additional Advocate-General P C Iype, Law Secretary C P  Ramaraja Prema Prasad, Bar Association  president K P Jayachandran were present on the occasion.

Nearly 20 cases had been filed since the KAT started its sitting on December 12, 2011. KAT,   which was formed to look into cases related with State Government employees consists of three judicial members, including the chairman, and three non-judicial members and three Benches out of which two would be based in the capital and one in Kochi to handle the cases from North Kerala.
