The Patna High Court heard that the government has neglected the state’s famous and majestic Madhubani painting and the pitiable condition of the artists. The bench of Justice ACJ CS Singh heard the public interest litigation in Atmabodh. The court asked the Secretary Art and Culture and Director Industries Department to examine the Madhubani painting made at the Patna airport site and submit a report to the court tomorrow. Petitioner’s lawyer Dr Maurya Vijay Chandra told the court that the Madhubani painting is a victim of the government’s negligence. In addition to this, the artists who make Madhubani paintings are also exploited on a large scale. He said that the fame of Madhubani painting is in the country and abroad, but Madhubani painting artists live in poverty. He said that Madhubani painting artists do not have knowledge of their legal rights. Referees take advantage of this. They take their paintings out and sell them at high prices, while giving a small amount to those artists.

He told the court that he had received permission from the Government of India to apply the GI tag in 2005 itself. It is registered under the geographical area but not yet registered. These artists are not aware of this. Referees take advantage of this. The next hearing on this matter will be held tomorrow.
