An affidavit filed in the top court stated “If a person remains in service having no connection/relationship with legal or judicial matters, then in that case, such candidate shall be required to clear the AIB Exam again if he/she decides to get his/her license to practice revived after remaining in the job for more than five years from the date of the publication of his/her result of AIBE.”

The apex court in April had said that a person engaged in other professions can be allowed to provisionally enroll with a bar council but has to clear the All India Bar Examination (AIBE) and upon clearing the test, will get six months to decide whether he or she would like to be an advocate or continue with the other job. The top court had said that the Bar Council of India (BCI) will have to consider whether a fresh AIBE examination needs to be conducted for those who seek to return to advocacy after getting their license suspended to take up other jobs, as they would have lost touch with the legal profession.
