Mr. T. M. Krishna, a prominent Carnatic music vocalist, cultural critic, and writer, approached us to file a writ petition before the Madras High Court, challenging the entirety of the Intermediary Rules, 2021. The writ petition came up for hearing before the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court on June 10, 2021. At the hearing, Mr. Parthasarthy, advocate for Mr. T. M. Krishna argued that the Rules impinge the fundamental rights of the Petitioner, and are ultra vires the parent act. The Madras High Court issued notice to the Respondents, gave them time to file their counter affidavit and the matter will be heard in four weeks.
