Delhi HC directs BCI to have Annual time table in advance

The Delhi High Court has directed the Bar Council of India (BCI) to consider announcing a pre-set schedule or timetable for the conduct of the All India Bar Examination (AIBE) in advance every year.

In the said matter, the plea was filed by a young advocate who was passed out back in 2019.

While rejecting the plea stating that he should not be debarred from practising in courts due to the non-conduct of the AIBE examination. 

The single-judge bench of Justice Pratibha Singh ordered:

The BCI shall consider announcing in advance, every calendar year the months in which the AIBE is likely to be conducted. This is considering the fact that there are a large number of prospective candidates who have to appear in AIBE, may have to make arrangements to be physically present to be able to give the AIBE examination. A pre-set schedule or at least an annual time table as part of the calendar every year would go a long way in assisting the candidates who wish to appear for the examination to make arrangements in respect thereof.

The Court further directed the Bar Council of India to submit a status report on having a pre-set schedule for the AIBE exam.

The Court further clarified that the petitioner-lawyer would not be debarred or disqualified from continuing to rely upon his provisional registration and appearing before the courts till further orders.
