All member institutions,
Sub: Legal cell – functioning of legal cell-legal advice & action – intimation – reg.
The Board of Management of CMAI has decided to start a Legal Cell at the national level for the following functions:
- to cater and represent the need of the institutional-members for specific legal case/issue.
- to clarify and explain any particular legal issue which cannot be understood correctly by the member-Institutions or their officers.
- to intervene and offer immediate legal advice by phone/email at the time of emergency especially in consumer, civil and criminal cases.`
- to advise about appeal provisions for member-institutions in case they fail to get favorable orders in a lower level judicial forum.
In pursuance of the request by many member institutions, this facility has been arranged. A senior advocate/legal consultant along with a panel of lawyers having rich experience in law and who has written many books/articles in the subject has consented to offer his advice and expertise.
A minimum subscription cost for this service is fixed.
Any individual member, member institution interested to know more about the scheme and the services included, may contact:

I would therefore, request all members to take the opportunity to utilize and be benefited by the legal cell.
