Waiver of the cost is available if the party is not able to afford to pay the fees which will be incurred. The waiver of cost can be done in any area. Waiver of cost takes place in the court fees, in loan payment, in paying fees, etc.
Section 15(2) of the Court Procedure Act, 2004 authorises “the registrars of the Supreme Court and Magistrates Court to waive payment of a court fee by a person, in full or in part, where the registrar considers that payment of the fees, or part of the fee, would impose hardship on the person.”
A copy of the transcript saying without paying the fee issued by the external transcript provider should be sent to the Registrar by the applicant. On receiving the copy of the transcript, the Registrar will go through the hardship faced by the applicant and being convinced that the applicant can’t pay the fees, agree to provide a free transcript or audio recording on the ground of hardship.
