The Bar Council of Delhi (BCD) through a letter dated September 11, 2019, has requested the courts and tribunals in Delhi to refrain from taking action on its recent request to prohibit 4,778 lawyers from practicing at various fora as they have failed the All India Bar Examination (AIBE) since 2010.

In the letter, the Secretary of the Bar Council said "Kindly refer to our letterdated 26.08.2019 regarding a list of 4,778 Advocates, who were said to have not cleared All India Bar Examination, conducted by Bar Council of India. In this behalf, this is to inform you that in view of some discrepancies having come to our notice in the said list, the said letter dated 26.08.2019 may not be acted upon until further communication."

The Bar Council in its earlier letter dated August 26, 2019, requested all the courts in Delhi to not allow such advocates to practice or to vote in any Bar election. The list of all such advocates was sent to the Registrars General of the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court, as well as to all Tribunals and District & Sessions Judges in the capital.

The August 26, 2019, letter was put on hold after reports that names of several lawyers who had passed the examination had also been included in the list erroneously.

The Bar Council has now asked the lawyers whose names were erroneously included in the list to submit their Enrolment Certificate and Certificate of Practice.
