yes, if any advocate does any other occupation in side work is commiting misconduct as per the Advocates Act. A any lawyer is not allowed to do side business as per the Advocate Act & if he/she wants to do the side business, then prior to this he/she would have to surrender his/her license of practice first.

Certainly it amounts to misconduct. Advocates Act prohibits any member of the bar from doing any business whether it is part time and full time. There is difference between the part time business or full time business in the Advocates Act.
