New Court Filing Fees Not Yet Enforced
by perakbar

The Rules of Court 2012 comes into force today. However, the increase in filing fees does not take effect from today. Order 1 Rule 1(3) of the Rules makes that very very clear. Although Order 91 and Appendix B1 and B2 refer to the new scale of filing fees, Order 91 will only take effect when the same is gazetted at a later date. The understanding we have is that it will take effect on the same day as the Subordinate Courts (Amendment) Act 2010.
There have already been reports that the counter clerks in some states are imposing the new filing fees. Please check your respective state courts and ensure that they are not doing this. Please ask them to contact Puan Hamidah Mohd Deril at 03-6209 4073 for clarification. She has informed me that she has notified all state courts.
