Bar Council of India (BCI) was about to conclude the registration process of AIBE 16 today, i.e. April 30, 2021, for the All India Bar Examination (AIBE) 16, but now the deadline has been extended to June 15, reports Bar and Bench. Candidates who wish to appear for the examination can now register themselves through the official website which is allindiabarexamination.com as per the report.
However, BCI has not published any notification on the official website allindiabarexamination.com. Aspirants should therefore aim at completing their registrations today, however, if date extension notice releases on the official website, then those who miss today’s deadline, can register later. Also, BCI is yet to announce the new examination date for AIBE 16. It is expected that the reschedule date shall be intimated soon. The exam is expected to be conducted once the COVID-19 situation stabilises in the country.
Authorities were scheduled to conduct the AIBE 16 exam on April 25, 2021. However, due to the rising COVID-19 cases in India, the exam stands postponed. Along with postponing the exam, BCI also decided to extend the registration deadline to June 15, 2021. Hence, interested candidates can apply for the exam through the online mode on the official website.
To apply for the exam, candidates must first register on the official website by entering their enrolment number or state and years of enrolment. After clicking on the acknowledgement option, the registration form shall appear on the screen. Candidates are then, required to enter their personal information along with education and enrolment details.
After carefully filling the application form, candidates have to upload important documents like photograph, signature, valid photo ID and Enrolment Certificate. All these documents must be self-attested as per the instructions provided by BCI. The next step includes paying the prescribed application fee and submitting the AIBE 16 application form. Candidates can download a copy of their filled-out application form or take a printout of the same for future reference.
BCI has also issued certain important instructions which are to be followed while completing the registration process. Firstly, all uploaded documents must be self-attested or the application may be rejected by authorities. In case a candidate has uploaded the wrong documents, the individual can log in to the website and upload the right ones. However, once the BCI has approved the application form, candidates are not allowed to log in and make any further changes.
Candidates must note that the registration process is entirely conducted through the online mode. Hence, they are not required to send any documents by post. All relevant and required documents must be uploaded online.
BCI conducts the AIBE test every year with the primary motive of testing a candidate’s abilities to practise law in the country.
