After receiving requests for extension from various quarters including various Bar Associations and State Bar Councils, the General Council of the BCI resolved thus: “After consideration, the General Council of the Bar Council of India, has resolved to extend the last date for submission of the details of every practicing Advocate of the country sought as per the requirement of the e-Committee of the Supreme Court of India, till 31st December, 2020.” The Council has requested all Individual Advocates, who have not yet submitted their details, to send their details through respective Bar Associations or through respective Bar Councils under whom they are enrolled. “They have to submit their details to the respective Bar Associations of which they are members and for convenience and ease, the entire list shall be required to be sent by/through the Bar Associations to BCI in word/excel format,” the Council had earlier stated. Reiterating the same, it said, “Even earlier too, the communication by the Bar Council of India has been addressed to Bar Associations and to Bar Councils only and Individual Advocates were specifically requested not to send any email with his/her detail to BCI by email. Individual Advocates should submit their details through Bar Associations or through Bar Councils as it will not be feasible to gather such required details of Advocates if they are sent Individually, and sending it through Bar Associations and Bar Councils would be appropriate and feasible.” Further the Council has clarified that it is not mandatory to furnish the information on letterheads of concerned Advocates and furthermore, it is not mandatory to append signatures of the Advocate/s furnishing such information by email, if the same is not feasible. It is reiterated here again that this scheme/proposal is for the benefit of all the Advocates. The Supreme Court has devised a method of communication with the Bar in 22 different regional languages of the country; the e-Committee has also been training the Lawyers for e-filings, virtual hearings etc. other necessary information/reports shall also be made available to Advocates. The Council has asked the Bar Associations to be more active, as the details which have been sought, may not all be available with the State Bar Councils. Vide letter dated July 24, 2020 the BCI had requested all the District and Taluka Bar Associations across the country to supply the details of all practising Advocates who are members of their respective Bar Associations, for perusal of the e-Committee of the Supreme Court of India.
