The suggestion is well taken and accepted by all the interested parties represented by learned counsel, and, accordingly, we modify paragraph 14 of the said judgment dated 20th July, 2012, by including the words “AND THE SCAORA” after the words “OTHER THAN THE SCBA” appearing at lines 3 and 4 of the paragraph and also after the same words appearing in line 11 of the said paragraph. Let the said paragraph be modified and read accordingly. As far as the other prayer made on behalf of the applicant is concerned, with regard to the number of filings in a year, as indicated in paragraph 9 of the judgment, we are convinced that since all advocates and members of the SCBA will be covered by the number of entries into the Supreme Court High Security Zone by the Proximity Card, the same does not require any modification at this stage.

IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA

CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION

I.A.NO.6

IN

CIVIL APPEAL NO. 3401 OF 2003 & 3402 OF 2003

 

SUPREME COURT BAR ASSOCIATION & ORS. Appellant (s)

VERSUS

B.D. KAUSHIK ETC. Respondent(s)

 

 

 
O R D E R

 
I.A.No.6 has been filed on behalf of the Supreme Court Bar
Association and Supreme Court Advocate-on-Record Association,
through its Secretary, Mrs. B.Sunita Rao, advocate, for
clarification and modification of the judgment/order dated 20th
July, 2012, wherein, while considering the application filed by
the SCBA(I.A. No.5 of 2011), certain suggestions made by the
Implementation Committee had been accepted.
Appearing in support of the said application, copies of
which have been served on all the interested parties, including
the members of the Implementation Committee, represented by Mr.
P.P. Rao and Mr. Ranjit Kumar, learned senior advocates, Mr.
Sushil Kumar Jain, learned advocate submitted that one omission
appears to have been made in paragraph 14 of the judgment,
wherein while considering the principle of ONE BAR ONE VOTE, we
had indicated that persons who had contested elections to the
Executive Committee of any Court annexed Bar Association, other
than the SCBA, during any of the years from 2007 to 2012, could
not be allowed to vote to elect the Office Bearers of the SCBA on
the aforesaid principle, or to attend the General Body meetings
of the SCBA. It was further mentioned that the same would also
include a person who had cast his vote in any election to the
Executive Committee of any Court annexed Bar Association, other
than the SCBA, for the above-mentioned years. It has been
pointed out by Mr. Jain that through inadvertence, the Supreme
Court Advocate-on-Record Association had not been excluded,
although, it formed an integral part of the SCBA.
The suggestion is well taken and accepted by all the
interested parties represented by learned counsel, and,
accordingly, we modify paragraph 14 of the said judgment dated
20th July, 2012, by including the words “AND THE SCAORA” after
the words “OTHER THAN THE SCBA” appearing at lines 3 and 4 of the
paragraph and also after the same words appearing in line 11 of
the said paragraph. Let the said paragraph be modified and
read accordingly.
As far as the other prayer made on behalf of the applicant
is concerned, with regard to the number of filings in a year, as
indicated in paragraph 9 of the judgment, we are convinced that
since all advocates and members of the SCBA will be covered by
the number of entries into the Supreme Court High Security Zone
by the Proximity Card, the same does not require any modification
at this stage.
I.A.6 filed in the disposed of appeal(s) is allowed to the
aforesaid extent.
