Breaking: The Bar Council of India (BCI) released a statement on its website that candidates who have enrolled as an advocate between 17 and 24 November 2012, could still register for the All India Bar Exam (AIBE) until 24 November.

The announcement by the BCI secretary stated:

It is notified that on the request received from various State Bar Councils/Applicants, the date of submission of AIBE- IV has been extended till 24th November, 2012. The extended date will only be applicable to those applicants who enroll themselves during the period from 17th November, 2012 to 24th November, 2012. Eligible candidates should pay fee of Rs. 1900/- through demand draft which should be in favour of “BAR COUNCIL OF INDIA” payable at New Delhi. The advocates would receive the application form along with the instruction sheet on their e-mail after which they need to register the application by calling the BCI helpline numbers i.e., 0120- 4897900, 4217086, 4217087 to get a unique application number. After completing this registration slip, along with the photograph, original demand draft, a certified copy of the enrollment certificate should be dispatched to the Bar Council of India on the address “ALL INDIA BAR EXAMINATION, BAR COUNCIL OF INDIA, 21, ROUSE AVENUE, INSTITUTIONAL AREA, NEW DELHI – 110002” so that it can reach the Bar Council of India on or before 25th November, 2012. It is made clear that registration slips received after 25th November, 2012 will be rejected without any action. Eligible applicants may contact on helpline  for query. Candidature of such applicants is provisional subject to the realization of fees and fulfillment of other conditions prescribed by the Bar Council of India.

In a separate announcement, the BCI has also published three further AIBE helpline numbers on its website: 0120-4897900, 0120-4217086, and 0120-4217087.

At the time of going to press at 18:30, Legally India a person answered the helpline on the second of those numbers. He confirmed that the registration extension only applied to those who had enrolled between 17 and 24 November.

However, when asked for confirmation on the total number of applications received so far, he hung up after adding: “This is something confidential, I wouldn’t be able to tell you.”

The exam itself has been postponed several times, as has the exam application deadline, most recently to 15 November, or in some cases 20 November.

Quoting Advocate Almost:
What about study materials and the Model Question paper which was to be uploaded on 10.11.2012?


I spoke to a lady on the second number listed above.
She told me that the model question paper was listed on the website but due to some technical problem" it was taken down.
What technical problem can arise from uploading a model question paper, I don't know.

I asked her if any study materials would be sent by post?
She said that NO study materials will be sent. She then told me to arrange for my own study materials according to the SYLLABUS mentioned on the website. How the HELL are we supposed to do THAT?!!

Good that you're keeping on this story.

The lack of promised study materials, beyond what has been disclosed for prior exams, can suggest several things. Is the exam unchanged in its transition from Rainmaker to the BCI, so the materials require no supplement? Or will the BCI spring new materials and a different test format on us at the last minute? Why did they announce a date for release of new materials (I think the date given was 9 Nov) and then not release them?

I'm sticking to my completely unscientific, utterly speculative prediction that the BCI will announce re-sked of the exam by next next Tuesday at 3:17 pm. Why such a precise time? Just for fun. We ought to get some giggles out of this utterly unjust abuse of our right to practice.

The domain registration lapsed yesterday but it has been re-registered now and should be up again in most parts of the world now and throughout the day.

Best wishes,
Kian
