Bar Council of India and RTI Act

The Bar Council of India has opposed to be under theRTI Act as it is not financed externally and its members are self employed.

true the Bar does not owe to anyone as it is directly patronized by the litigants. but The members of the Bar can not act unilaterally witout its other limb i,e Judiciary. the ultimate purpose of the RTI Act which is a product of thought inherent in the Constitution to safeguard the interest of the public and advance the cause of the systems like Judicial system would be defeated if both members of the Bar and the Bench are not made equally responsible to the public to whom they pledge allegiance.

ABSOLUTLY RIGHT YOU ARE.

Firstly Supreme Court Judges, then bar council trying to get out from the attraction of the RTI.

What a nice culture. Better RTI should be repealed.

Whatever be the stated objectives of Bar Council of India and the state-wise Bar Association, their main functions seems to be to protect crooked and corrupt lawyers from any action being taken against them for their misdeeds. What a disgusting farce!
