THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: State committee of Indian Association of lawyers (IAL) has demanded the government to empower the Kerala Administrative Tribunal (KAT) to deal with all the cases related to all the government departments and staff.

  IAL state vice-president Vazhuthacaud Narendran appealed in a memorandum submitted to the Chief minister, Chief secretary, Law Secretary and Principal Secretary(general administration) to issue a notification in this regard.

  He pointed out that the KAT had no jurisdiction to handle cases belonging to the Corporation, Municipality, panchayat, other boards and Corporations as the notification as per section 15(2) in the administrative tribunal law is missing.

  Further, the High Court had stated that it still had the power to deal with these cases as per an order issued on January 1,2012.
