Wearing Lawyer’s Suit Without The Bar Council’s Authorisation Is Illegal

According to the legal terms, if anyone wants to wear a lawyer's attire for commercial purposes, they have to ask for the Bar Council’s permission. Moreover, the regulation is available in the Bar Council of India, the Bar Council of Delhi and all other states of India. In addition to that, the advertisement will hold legal responsibility for any relating issues. Without the official permission from the Bar Council, it will be illegal for those who use this special suit to make benefit out of it.

Official Notice From The Bar Council Of Delhi

The notice supposes that both media house and the actor didn’t take any adequate precautions for this issue. It also requires the commercial maker to remove the advertisement from all media. Besides, they also need to follow the regulation of not using the attire in any other commercials.

Both Amitabh Bachchan and in-charged media house has received the notice. Even the Youtube channel which published the video was slapped with the same notice as it has allowed the video without verification. The brand Pav Bhaji is not an exception as they are responsible for the issue too.

Bad Luck Comes Twice

It’s noticeable when this is the second time when Amitabh Bachchan faces problems with his video commercials. Earlier, the veteran actor and his daughter featured in a jewellery commercial which angered bank employees. After that, the ads received harsh criticisms and was considered as an allusion to the banking sector. The Bank Union said that the commercial described the banking field in a bad light and it’s offensive to all bank employees. Lately, they even threaten to open a disputation against the jewelry brand.
