Abhishek Manu Singhvi: ‘Concept of peer regulation is a failure’ as seen in BCI, Medical Council

Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi said at an event as reported by The Hindu that “broadly” the judiciary was “very independent”, though it occasionally submits to political pressure.

He also added that the Bar Council of India (BCI) had failed in regulating the profession:

Mr. Singhvi also said that he was worried about the various conflicts of interests ailing the media. “What is the reason? The reason is we do not have a robust legislation and a robust regulator. The Press Council of India has powers to do nothing and when it does have some power, it does nothing. This whole concept of peer regulation is a failure like the Bar Council of India and the Medical Council of India,” he said.
