SC notice on BCI`s plea

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today issued
notices on the plea of Bar Council of India (BCI) seeking
transfer of cases from various High Courts in which advocates
body`s rule fixing minimum marks for getting admission into
law colleges has been challenged.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia issued
notices and sought response from several persons and entities,
including educational institutions, on the plea of the BCI
contending that all the petitions pending with various High
Courts on the issue be heard by the apex court.

"The grounds of challenge and the prayers made in all the
writ petitions that are being sought to be transferred are
substantially similar," the counsel for BCI said.

BCI has come up with the rule making it mandatory to
secure minimum 45 per cent of the total marks for general
category candidates and 40 per cent for reserved communities
at the +2 or the degree examination for seeking admission into
5 years` integrated course or 3 years` course respectively.

Petitions were filed in the High Courts of Karnataka,
Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Chhattisgarh and Uttarakhand
challenging the rule framed by the BCI in 2008.
