VIA LEGALLY INDIA: BCI forces bar exam takers to waive RTI rights & pay BCI’s costs if losing legal challenge

Excerpts from the Legally India report here:

“According to the undertaking to be signed by AIBE applicants registering for the AIBE-VIII, they have to agree to bear the entire cost of any litigation related to the AIBE against the BCI if they lose.

The undertaking also prohibits the candidates from filing Right to Information (RTI) requests for their AIBE answer sheets or the answer key, and overrides the provisions of the RTI Act by imposing a time limit of 20 days from “cause of action” for filing an RTI.”
