Procedure for transfer from one state bar to another?

What is the procedure for transfer of name by an advocate from the rolls of one State Bar Council to another?
The Bar Council of India Rules specify that if a person desires to transfer his name from the rolls of one State Bar Council to another, he may make an application to the Bar Council of India for such transfer. The application must be accompanied by

(1) A certified copy of the entry in the state roll relating to the applicant; and
(2) A certificate from the state council stating
  • that his certificate of enrolment has been recalled,
  • that the applicant is entitled to practise on the date of his application,
  • that there are no disciplinary proceedings pending against the applicant, and
  • that it has no objection to the transfer being ordered.

On receipt of an application for transfer, the secretary will enquire from the state council concerned whether they have any objection to transfer being granted. Thereafter the papers must be placed for disposal before the council or a committee constituted for the purpose. The Bar Council of India may, after hearing the applicant, reject the application if it is not bonafide or if there is a disciplinary proceeding pending against the applicant.

In case the Bar Council of India allows the transfer, the same will be duly communicated to the applicant. Thereafter it is the duty of the applicant to produce the certificate of enrolment issued to him for endorsement to the state council on the roll of which his name appears. The state council may as soon as possible after endorsement and the making of necessary entries in the roll, transfer the certificate to the state council to which the name of the advocate is directed to be transferred. The secretary of the latter state council must make further endorsements. After all formalities are complied with, the transfer is deemed to take effect from the date of the direction of the Bar Council of India.

No fee is chargeable for transfer of names from one roll to another and the advocate who is transferred will retain the same seniority as he/she had on the rolls of the former bar council.

Thanks Shree for this information.

However, would like to inform you that, while I was trying to transfer my name from the UP Bar Council to Maharashtra Bar Council, the UP Bar Council asked for a fee of Rs 1050 (By way of a DD in favour of BAR COUNCIL OF UP). And I was told that the Goa & Maharashtra Bar will also levy a fee of Rs. 1000 for the yrs of seniority. Plus the Bar Council of India, New Delhi also sought for a fee. I wonder when the Advocates Act mandates their shall be no fee charged for any such transfer between the States how can these Bar Councils charge fee that to on the name of the Bar itself.

 

Pls shed some light on this point as well.

 

Thanks,

DNT

In case of DELHI NCR, an advocate residing in Indirapuram,Ghaziabad, intends to practise in Delhi High Court or Karkardooma Court. Is address of Delhi is necessary or any address of NCR will be sufficient.
