Today it has been said that paper work will be completed and only after that the next round of counting the second preference votes will start.

A big day for Karanjit Singh ( Candidate number 57). It was really a big dramatic change that brought him as number 1 contender in Punjab & Haryana Bar council member elections 2013.

    Ravinder Kaushik, Advocate

  11. I am not satisfied this pattern of the election.The constituency is whole punjab Haryana and chandigarh i.e. more than a M.P.Thereafter the voting preference system is not understood as to why it is so complicated .It is not understood as why it has been made simple dividing the whole bar council area in the constituency geograhically depending on the Nos of the votes on any appointed day .Complicacy of the election should also conmensurate the post.Even it is more complicated then the election of the President of India .The Bar Council should have at least done some thing in this direction at least for the convenience of the Candidates ,their expenses , for the conveniences of the acquaintance of the candidates to the voters.I do not know any thing about a candidate belonging to Ferozepur Pb being belonging to Haryana.Rs 5 lakhs have been paid to Returning Officer for conducting our elections. Elections results of 09 June 2013 are still not on net and it should be quite hightech we are calling our candidates and counting agents for scores of votes.After elections also the plight of the Advocates is not going to change as it has not changed since the beginning an average advocate can not make his point effectively as there is no effective complaint hearing system against the judges till now and every thing is purely discretionary.

  12. Well in case you want to raise your voice using Geek Upd8 as your platform, i suggest not to stay anonymous, so that whatever you saying could be considered to be authenticated as your version.

  13. candidates spent huge money from their own pocket but for what ? I will appreciate if anybody can explain. We as advocates pay the fees for enrollment and other charges from time to time if that money attracts them ? I do not understand ?

  14. Money.. Money .. Money... Scam.. Scam.. Scam... Some people just can't think above of it.... There are other emoluments too... For the record, I got the chance to have a little talk with atleast 6 of the contenders... All of them are having a good practice... Some of them are even earning tens of lakhs per month...

  15. In my comments I have said that if the election is made geographically delimited likewise lately for MPs consituencies ,there was a delimitation commission headed by Justice Kuldeep Singh retd SC Judge, in that event it will be convenient for the candidates also as well they will be well acquainted to the voters also and that will be resulting in the saving of their expenses of pamphlets ,banners,and conveyance expenses and I think it will be beneficial for all voters as well as to the candidates as they will not need to go to the voters who do not know them even remotely by visiting them from East to West and north to south except within their constituency.The highest body of the nation i.e. Parliament election also have the geographical limitation who are the highest law makers of the country then why it should not be made for us.Their counting is done maximum within a day and sometimes by electronic voting machines within hours even having more than ours votes.I think suggestion is good for all but also I think will not be considered as it has not been looked into till now .The other aspect of flourishing practice will not be affected thereby nor I allege any thing about that because sometime 10 lakhs can be earned only in one and single case also that is purely individual aspect .Ours nearabout 30 thousand votes have not been counted till now and it will take some more time.My suggestion is for making the whole process simpler for all voters as well as candidates.

  16. plz update the result list of bar counsil election voting counting after 9 june 2013. thanks

  22. In india there is no value of truth remains if value remains than the truth remains as stale or old (BUDHI) .There is the reason that the President of USA is the most powerful man of the world .They can catch and arrest and kill Saddam Hussain and also most declared dreaded also Osama Bin Laden ,whereas they can not do any thing of Dawood.Because here is the pursuit for the money and there is the pursuit for the nation.
