The Vakalatnama is the official document which lawyers submit in the court of law when they represent anybody i.e. client. It is also known as Vakilpatra in regional language. The Vakalatnama has to be duly signed by the client and indentified & accpeted by the Advocate.

  • The client will not hold the Advocate responsible for any decision.

  • The client shall bear all the costs and /expenses incurred during the proceedings.

  • The advocate shall have right to retain the documents, unless complete fees are paid.

  • The client is free to disengage the Advocate at any stage of the Proceedings.

  • Vakalatnama is affixed on the last page of plaint / suit and is kept along with court records.

  • No fees are required to be paid on it. However, nowadays, Delhi High court Rules require, a 10 Rupees. "Advocate Welfare Stamp" to be affixed on the Vakalatnama.

  • Plaint should also have the requisite court fees attached to it. Court fees are some nominal percentage of the value of the claim or value of the suit. The requisite amount of Court and stamp fees is different for every suit, and is mentioned in the "Court Fees Stamp Act."
