A Vakalatnama/Vakalatpatra is a mandate or an authority in writing given by the client appointing a Lawyer to appear and plead on his behalf. Usually lawyers have a standard printer format which is given to their clients for executing the same. The usual practice followed by the Lawyers is that the clients sign the Vakalatnama first then the lawyers sign and file the same in Court.

Vakalatnama or Vakil Patra or for that matter, Vakalat Form, the details of which is usually filled by the Advocate. It is an appointment of an Advocate by the client who can adjudicate the matter on the client's behalf, since the Advocate knows law more than a common person. No, you should not sign a blank Vakalat Form.

Hello, A vakalt form/Vakaltnama is an authority given by Client to an Advocate to appear on his/her behalf before the concerned court and to do other necessary legal orienting activities such as drafting, arguments, prepare applications, appeals, examinations, to compromise the matter. etc. It is used as an authority before the concerned court that a client by way of vakaltnama to do the above said acts on his/her behalf. Only the case details and the name of the party authorizing the lawyer has to be filled. Yes you can sign but i will suggest that one should sign after the other details are filed in the vakaltnama.

I Cannot pursue my higher education in Karnataka in Evening engineering stream?, because of im from other state not from karnataka.

Evening engineering there are so many colleges in Karnataka, but only government seats through KEA (Karnataka Examinations Authority) they are calling. Due to their eligibility criteria other state candidates cannot register. If we are staying Karnataka more than 10 years also cannot apply due to their criteria, at the same time lateral entry for BE regular basis are available for other state candidates for management quota only . Why other state working professionals cant apply Evening engineering?. Almost 50% seats are unfilled for evening stream in every year, why University is not allowing at least Management quota?. Is it discrimination?.

My fundamental rights are infringed.

Hi, I am a public servant. I had filed RTI against my office. They gave wrong information. Hence, I complained to CIC. 4 days later I was transferred on temporary basis. There are no rules for such transfer. Later on I had filed 4 more RTI. Last, RTI was filed on 03-04-2019. The CEO called me on landline and used unparliamentary words. I rushed back to office to confront him which he denied and he also called 5 of his subordinates, 3 of them ganked up on me. One of them threatened me. I filed a police complaint, but they have said do not drag us in this. The CEO issued show cause notice and in reply I gave brief facts and relief sought for. I have referred this issue to superior authority. No reply yet. This is not the first time I am being targeted. Previously I had filed harassment complaint against 2 of them. Earlier, I was wrongfully terminated and I got reinstated to duty with full benefits. The superior authorities did not take any disciplinary actions or a enquiry. I would like to know my options here.
