Chennai: The Bar Council of India (BCI)
announced on Saturday that the mandatory All India Bar Examination
(AIBE) in Chennai that was to be held on Sunday has been
postponed to an unspecified date in light of the April 13

The BCI has made the exam mandatory for law graduates who
enter the legal profession in the country. The AIBE,
originally slated to be held on March 6 had already been

the AIBE in Chennai in light of the Assembly polls, the BCI
made the announcement postponing the exam to a undecided date.
The BCI is co-ordinating with the State Government of
Tamil Nadu to fix a revised date and will communicate the same
to candidates shortly. Revised admit cards along with the
venue details etc., will be made available to all candidates
and adequate notice of the same will be available to all
