Delhi High Court Reaffirms the Role of an Advocate

Justice Pratibha M Singh of Delhi High Court in the case of Anil Kumar and Anr Vs. Amit Kumar CRP 75/2020 & CM APPL 29472/2020 decided on 17th November 2021 has reaffirmed the  position of law that an advocate who is engaged by a client would have to play only one role, i.e., that of the advocate in the proceedings and cannot act as a power of attorney holder and verify pleadings and file applications or any other documents or give evidence on behalf of his client. The practice of advocates acting as power of attorney holder of their clients as also as advocate in the matter is contrary to the provisions of Advocate Act 1961.
