O R D E R
1.

This is a transferred case wherein we had transferred the

Special Civil Application No.6787 of 2007 pending before the High


Court of Gujarat at Ahmedabad.

2.

In the Special Civil Application filed before the High

Court

of

Gujarat

at

Ahmedabad

under

Article

226

of

the

Constitution of India, the petitioner had sought a Writ to quash


and set aside Rule 5(2)(g)(i) of the Enrolment Rules of the Bar
Council

of

Enrolment

Gujarat.
Rules

of

The

said

Rule

which

the

Bar

Council

of

was

inserted

Gujarat,

vide

in

the

their

Resolution dated 17.12.2006, is questioned on the ground that the

Reason:

A similar rule was inserted by the Bar Council of Madras

in their Enrolment Rules. The same had been questioned by some of


the

persons,

who

were

interested

in

enrolling

themselves

as

2
members of the Bar, though they had crossed the requisite age
limit of 45 years. The High Court of Madras, after a detailed
consideration of the issue that was presented before them, had
quashed the aforesaid Rules. The said order of the Madras High
Court is confirmed by us. Since the Rule that is questioned in the
present application filed before the Gujarat High Court is in pari
materia with the Rule that came up for consideration before the
Madras High Court, we are of the considered opinion that for the
reasons

mentioned

therein,

the

transferred

case

ought

to

be

allowed and the said Rule has to be quashed.

Ordered accordingly.
