Advocate-on-Record is an advocate who is entitled under the Order IV of the Supreme Court Rules, 2013, framed by the Supreme Court of India under Article 145 of the Constitution, to act as well as to plead for a party in the Supreme Court of India. As per the rules, no advocate other than an advocate on record shall be entitled to file an appearance or act for a party in the Supreme Court of India. No advocate other than an advocate on record can appear and plead in any matter unless he is instructed by an advocate-on-record. Only Advocate on Record are entitled to file any matter or document before the Supreme Court. They can also file an appearance or act for a party in the Supreme Court. An advocate can be registered as an advocate-on-record if they qualify the requirements as laid down in the Supreme Court of India Rules, 2013 and 'Regulations regarding Advocates-on-Record Examination'. If an advocate wants to practice as an advocate-on-record in the Supreme Court, they need an additional qualification. The advocate has to practice for four years as an advocate and thereafter has to demonstrate to the Supreme Court that they have started taking training with a Senior Advocate on record because they intend to become an Advocate-on-record. After the expiry of one year's training, the advocate has to appear for an examination conducted by the Supreme Court itself. After an advocate passes this examination they must have a registered office within a radius of 10 miles from the Supreme Court building and a registered clerk. It is after this that the Chamber Judge of the Supreme Court accepts them as an advocate-on-record. Supreme Court of India Rules, 2013 can be downloaded from here.
