: Is Bar Council of India prototype of Dr. Ketan Deasi ?

It is wrong to evaluate Dr. Ketan Desai in terms of corruption only. He reigned terror among medical fraternity for decades through his followers. Many bright careers were spoiled. Many left medical profession and many committed suicide. He enjoyed dictatorship under the guise of autonomy of the Medical Council of India and his stooges in State Medical Councils, Medical Associations and Medical Colleges and Universities by misuse of the privilege enshrined under the Constitution of India. His victims were not only professionals but also medical students...Even capital punishment is short of the desired effect of the Law of Land for such rogues.

Now coming to the august body which is custodian of legal standards and premier Institution for the welfare and protection of the noble profession of lawyers, the state of affairs is no different than that of the regime of Dr. Ketan Desai in all dimensions. Recent developments are sufficient to substantiate the allegation against the champion for the cause of law, lawyers and justice...

  1. It was the historical moment when when the Bar Council of India passed the following resolution approving the Advocates ( Protection against *malicious Prosecution ) Rules, 2008 to safeguard the dignity and honour of the Advocate i.e. no arrest can be made or prosecution be instituted without the prior sanction of the Bar Council of the State in the discharge of his professional duty...

Resolution No. 59 of 2008 :

“RESOVED that the Draft Rules proposed by Shri A. Patrawala be and are hereby approved subject to the following correction:

In the ' Short title and commencement ' the word “malicious” occurring between the words “against “ and “Prosecution “ be deleted.

The Bar Council of India has taken no further step to get it passed by the Parliament since 2008.

2. The Bar Council of Gujarat has politicised the issue of transfer of cases from one District to another, or one State to Another as the law is to that of the pride of Gujarat State casting aspersions on the Judiciary that it is an insult to it when judiciary itself is capable to take care of itself. The Bar Council of India should have taken stern actions against the move to drag the autonomous body to the arena of Politics just to suit the political ends of the particular Political Party and appease the particular Political CM. The resolution passed by the Bar Council of Gujarat is deplorable and against the sanctity and autonomy of the august body. There is no scope for politics in Bar Council.

  1. Amjadkhan Pathan, a law student of Surat having passed his M.A; LL.B. (General) from the recognised Veer Narmad South Gujarat University, Surat was denied admission to the LL.B.(Special) Course since last nine years just because he secured 43.47% marks at his B.A. Level...There are more than 835 law students who are denied admissions on this ground in Gujarat. It is absurd, illegal and arbitrary to give credence and preference to the percentage of graduation level once the candidate has passed the LL.B. ( General ) (50% aggregate Marks )and conferred Degree accordingly. Shall we consider the percentage of the LL.B. (General) Degree or Graduation Degree for admission to the LL.B.(Special) Course ?? Right to pursue the further studies of student is denied. The Writ Petition was dismissed by the Chief Justice ( in a hurry to be elevated to Supreme Court ) and Other Brother Judge Bench of High Court of Gujarat because the Affidavit in Reply by Respondent No. 1 the Secretary, Bar Council of India in made on the false and fabricated statements regarding the Bar Council of India Part IV Rules for Legal Education, 2008 which only talks of three years and five years course.
