The BCI has extended the deadline for submission of details of all practicing advocates with their respective District Bar Council or Taluka Bar Association across the country till September 30, 2020.

On 24 July, 2020, the President and the Secretaries were asked to submit all the details of all the advocates registered under the respective Bar Associations in the format which the Supreme Court has asked them to give, via email within 15 days. But, due to all the problems faced by the people because of the Pandemic, Bar Councils have requested various Bar Councils of Districts and States, to extend the time for submitting the details; the BCI has approved the extension of date of submission till 30th September. 

This format is to be e-filled up by every practicing Advocate of the country and submitted to the Bar Association/s of which they are members preferably, by Email/WhatsApp: 

  • S. No.
  • Enrolment Number of Advocate in State Bar Council with the year of enrolment

All the Bar Associations of the country are requested and directed to furnish the aforementioned details of all the Advocates registered with them within a period of 15 days from the date of receipt of this letter from the office of BCI. This is to be treated as the most urgent

The Bar Council of India has resolved to make the submission of the duly filled up format to be mandatory. If any Advocate fails to furnish the same to his respective Bar Association and the Bar Association to BCI, such Advocate shall be treated as a Non-Practicing Advocate by the Council. 

Also, the BCI has said that those Advocates who have not been registered under any District Bar Association or Taluka, may send all the details to the concerned State Bar Councils, and the State Bar Councils will send such information to the BCI. 

The BCI told the objective for creating the WhatsApp group, in which the BCI said that the groups are meant to access the information and various other things which are circulated by the BCI or SBCs.
