After fake lawyers, it seems now its turn for Fake Judges. What has comes as a shock to the legal fraternity in India, Authorities at Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry have found that a man managed to served Tamil Nadu Judicial Service as a Magistrate for more than 21 years without any recognised law degree.

Responding to a showcause notice from Bar Council, ‘Magistrate’ P Natarajan of Ulaganeri which is situated in Madurai stated that, “It is not fair and justified to cancel enrollment as advocate of a person who was in the judicial services for more than 25 years, including 21 years as a judicial magistrate.”

According to the ‘Magistrate’ Natarajan he did his BGL ‘course’ at the Sarada Law College which is affiliated to the Mysore University in Karnataka for two years through the correspondence/distance education mode and was awarded a ‘degree’. Apparently, he attended classes only for third year during 1975-78.

Natarajan was then selected as Judicial Magistrate on February 15, 1982, and after a ‘peaceful’ tenure of about 22 years and he retired on June 30, 2003.

Post his retirement, he enrolled himself as a lawyer with Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry and was assigned with enrolment number MS1739/2003.

After Supreme Court had ordered verification of the enrollment certificates, Bar Council stumbled upon his him and slapped a showcause notice on Natarajan on January 4, 2016.

Notice traced academic as well as service history of ‘Magistrate’ Natarajan and called upon him to explain why he should not be removed from rolls.
