New Delhi (ILNS): New lawyers of Madhya Pradesh, whose provisional licence period has completed two years, can continue to be provisions lawyers till the completion of the All India Bar Examination.

This freedom was allowed by the Madhya Pradesh High Court recently when it asked the lawyers to approach the Bar Council of India (BCI) for relief. The BCI, while considering the representations, made arrangements that from March 24 to 31 the new lawyers can carry on.

Advocate Sanjay Verma informed that the residents of Jabalpur and Bhopal had reached the High Court through other petitions, including the provisional lawyers Chanchal Tiwari and Naveen Ahuja. The Division Bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Yadav (Acting) and Justice Rajiv Kumar Dubey had disposed of their petitions with the direction that they are free to put their demands before the BCI.

The petitioners had given the All India Bar Exam in November-2019. On the complaint of mass cheating, BCI had cancelled the exam. The All India Bar Exam has not been conducted since. 

Those lawyers who obtained a provisional licence after obtaining an LLB degree are now upset. This is because this facility is available only for two years. If they do not pass the All India Bar Exam then with the completion of two years they will not be eligible to appear in the courts. That is why the new advocates were distraught, but the BCI averted the crisis.
