The Kerala high court has admitted a retired postal service official’s challenge to the Kerala bar council rules, reported the New Indian Express.

The rules prescribe advocate enrolment fee in excess of that prescribed in the Advocates Act 1961, in case the advocates seeking enrolment have retired from a job.

In his petition, the petitioner T Koshi stated that the Kerala bar council had illegally hiked the fee for enrollment through amendment in its rules with complete disregard to the Advocates Act passed by the Parliament.

The Act has fixed the enrolment amount to be Rs 600 for general category and Rs 100 for scheduled castes and tribes, according to the report.

A committee has been constituted by the bar council to look into the matter and submit a report to the court.
