Form 12 Vakalatnama


RULE 67. Form and execution of vakalatnama – (a) Every vakalatnama authorizing a legal practitioner to plead and act shall be in Form No.12. The name of the legal practitioner so appointed shall be inserted in the vakalatnama before it is executed. It shall be dated at the time of its execution and of its acceptance. Its execution shall be attested by Judicial officer, Gazetted Officer serving in connection with the affairs of the Union or of any State in India or a legal practitioner other than the legal practitioner accepting the vakalatnama.

(b) The authority attesting the vakalatnama under sub-rule (a) shall certify that it has been duly executed in his presence and subscribe his signature giving his name and designation. Attestation shall be made only after the name of the legal practitioner is inserted in the vakalatnama before its execution. When a vakalatnama is executed by a party who appears to be illiterate, blind or unacquainted with the language of the vakalatnama, the attestor shall certify that the vakalatnama was read, translated and explained in his presence to the executant, that he seemed to understand it and that he signed or affixed his thumb mark in his presence.

(c) Every vakalatnama shall contain an endorsement of acceptance by the legal practitioner in whose favour it is executed and shall also bear his address for service. If the vakalatnama is in favour of more than one legal practitioner, it shall be signed and accepted by all of them, giving the address for service of any one of them.
