The government has been crediting the aid once every six months under the scheme to better execute it and make it more advantageous for junior advocates to meet their needs with a lump sum amount.
According to officials, to benefit from the scheme, junior advocates who meet the eligibility requirements must register online at https://ysrlawnestham.ap.gov.in/ and upload their educational certificates, Aadhaar numbers, and bank account details.
In addition to the program, the government established the Advocates Welfare Trust, which has Rs 100 crore allocated to it for advocates. The Advocate General serves as its chairman, and the Secretaries of Law and Finance are among its members. Up until now, the trust has given advocates access to loans, Group Mediclaim Policies, and other financial support totaling Rs 25 crore.
According to the officials, eligible advocates who would like to apply for trust assistance can do so online at firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting the Law Secretary directly.
