Advocates can practice in courts across the country irrespective of their enrollment in any Bar Council without the need to transfer license to their desired States

 

Government has said that it has notified Section 30 of the Advocates Act, 1961 recently enabling the lawyers to practice in courts across the country irrespective of their enrolment in any Bar Council without the need to transfer license to their desired States.   

 

Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Shri Salman Khurshid, Minister of Law & Justice, said that subject to provision of the Advocates Act, 1961, every advocate whose name is entered in the State roll shall be entitled as of right to practice throughout the territories to which this Act extends. He informed the House that this section has come into force with effect from the 15th June, 2011

 

NOTE :   Advocates Act, 1961, is a Central Act and extends to whole of India.

This is not applicable to AOR. For becoming AOR they have to pass the exam.

Dear Mr.Rajendrakhatana,

 

You cannot obtain SANAT to practice as an Advocate , so long as  you are  in service of the Company.  If you want to practice in Court of Law, you should first quit you job and thereafter  approach your State Bar Council concerned for enrolment.
