    It is not clear from the communique as to how the suggestions and views of the Bar members and other stakeholders will be dealt with and whether these will carry any weight in deciding the conferment of title as senior advocates. Since only the well wishers and friends of the applicants will participate in this exercise it will only be an empty formality.
