The manner in which these Bills are drafted and are sought to be introduced by the HRDMinistry is clandestinely trying to sideline and to harm the advocates of the country andtheir elected statutory Bodies in the matter of legal education and legal profession.The joint meeting has unanimously RESOLVED to oppose these Bills till the HRD Ministrydoe
s not exclude “the legal education” and the “Advocates Act, 1961” from the purview of
all these anti people Bills. The meeting was of the unanimous view that the HER Bill, 2011
is not only an attack on the Advocates’ Act, but it is completely in violation of the federal
structure of the nation. The HRD Ministry is trying to hand-over the entire educationsystem to a few of its nominees. Apart from being arbitrary, the said Bill is totally
impractical and attempts to spoil “the tested and well established traditional norms of education system of the country”.
