Producing certificates of practice: A long and hard job, clearly...

The Bar Council of India (BCI) announced yesterday (see below) that the long-awaited certificates of practice for those who passed the 10th All India Bar Exam (AIBE) held on 26 March 2017 are now available, but only for 19 states.

Some big states, however, remain absent from the list, such as Maharashtra and Goa, and Karnataka.

The 10th bar exam date itself had been delayed several times, while results for the AIBE X had also been delayed, with it taking more than 2 months for resuts to be published.

Meanwhile, the 11th bar exam was held on 3 December 2017, with fees having been hiked by 40% over the past years, which the BCI refused to provide reasons for in an RTI.

In respect of the AIBE X certificates, the AIBE website stated:

The COP for AIBE-X for the below mentioned states have been released and it is available for distribution at the respective state bar council. Candidate are requested to collect their CERTIFICATE OF PRACTICE (COP) from their respective state bar council “
