A notary is neither paid a monthly salary nor any fees by the Government. The fees that is paid to him is not by the Government , but by the individual client whom he serves. He renderes no service to Government in the discharge of its sovereign functions or in its carrying on the civil administration ofr the State. He is not bound by the Government Servants Conduct Rules and therefore, it can not be said that he was ineligible to hold full-time office of the president of District Consumer Disputed Redressal Forum.-A.I.R.1997 Ori.1(D.B.)
A full time member renders his services to Government.and the salary or honorarium and other allowances payble to him by the State Government.
In my opinion he may not be allow to practice as a Lawyer.
