BCI calls off nationwide protest from May 2 after meeting with Law Minister

Hours after a meeting with Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. The Bar Council of India has decided to put a rest to its vendetta against the Law Commission of India.

A delegation headed by Bar Council of India Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra, along with other representatives of the BCI, the Delhi High Court Bar Association and district bar associations, met the Law Minister today at 5 pm.

According to a resolution passed by the BCI, Ravi Shankar Prasad assured the lawyers that no action will be taken on the Law Commission’s 266thReport proposing wholesale changes to the Advocates Act. The Law Minister also clarified that the Centre did not have any say in the Report published last month.

In response to Law Minister’s assurance, the BCI decided to call off all protests and agitations against the Advocates (Amendment) Bill drafted by the Law Commission, including the march of advocates scheduled for May 2.

The Bar Council of India and other lawyers’ associations had earlier resolved to withhold from court proceedings and burn copies of the 266thReport in protest of “draconian, anti-lawyer” changes seen as a threat to the legal profession.
