Indian lawyers to gain right to practise interstate

June 6, 2011 The Central Government of India has decided to notify Section 30 of the Advocates Act, 1961 giving lawyers the right to practice in any court, tribunal or any quasi judicial authority in India.

The provision - which allows lawyers to practive throughout india regardless of the state in which they are enrolled - was enacted almost 50 years ago, but is still not in force.

Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily announced that the long-pending demands of Indian lawyers had been conceded, and he had passed appropriate orders for notifying this Section early next week.
