The Bar Council of India (BCI) has decided to defer its agitation against the controversial Higher Education and Research (HER) Bill after HRD Minister, Kapil Sibal, assured that necessary amendments will be carried out to address the concerns of lawyers.
BCI contends the bill will lead to control of legal education passing out of the hands of BCI. It says the government is trying to undermine the authority of the elected body of advocates.
