"There were many other people who had taken law degree many years back, and got themselves enrolled in the profession as an advocate. But for certain reasons, while some of them switched over to other professions, some became full-time politicians."

However, the de-recognised lawyers can be granted recognition again after they start law practice in the and fulfill the guidelines of the Bar Council of India.
