MP, MLAs to be barred from practicing law?

News Agencies | Updated on: 10 January 2018, 17:42 IST

The Bar Council of India on 10 January issued a notice to all MLA, MLC, and MPs whether or not they should be barred from practicing law while they serve as legislators.

The final decision is likely to be taken in a BCI meeting on 22 January. The council has asked all of them to file their replies in a week's time.

Last year, President of National Lawyers' Campaign for Judicial Transparency and Reforms (NLC) Mathews Nedumpara had written a letter to the Chairman of Bar Council of India seeking a ban on Members of Parliament (MPs) practicing law in court.
