Foreign Lawyers should be permitted to practice in India; in national interest: BCI

The bar council had recently allowed foreign nationals to be permitted to practice in India, which would be based on the principle of reciprocity. Regarding the same, there were a lot of misapprehensions and misinformation which were being circulated, so it was decided by the bar council of India to address the same through the mode of a press release.

It was stated by the bar council that the rules as per which the foreign lawyers are being permitted to practice in India are being done in a very restricted manner and there would be no threat to the practice of the Indian lawyers.

The press releases have clarified that the rules are framed as per the judgment of the supreme court which is the BCI v. A.K Balaji. In this case, the supreme court stated that the central government has the liberty to formulate rules regarding the matter above mentioned.

It has been assured by the Bar Council of India, that it will always be committed to working for the safeguards and security of the lawyers in the country, therefore the lawyers in the country should not feel insecure and welcome the rules which would be working in pursuance of the national interests.

These lawyers will not have the liberty to appear in a court of law, but they can advise the clients on the issues of foreign law and even take up work pertaining to corporate transactions. As per BCI, such a move can increase the flow of foreign direct investment in the country further paving the way to make India a hub of international commercial arbitration.
