Even as action is being initiated against fake lawyers in the state, a former Magistrate from Tamil Nadu may have to face the consequences of having served on the Bench for over two decades without possessing a recognised law degree.

The Magistrate in question, P Natarajan, had obtained his degree through a correspondence course from Sarada Law College, affiliated to Mysore University. As per a TOI Report, he only attended classes in the said college during his final year. He was selected as a Magistrate in 1982 and retired without question in 2003. Following this, he proceeded to get himself enrolled as a lawyer again and was allotted the enrollment number MS1739/2003.

Nattarajan’s qualifications (or lack thereof) came to light when a complaint was made to the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry for failing to initiate action against him. He was therefore served a show cause notice in January 2016.
