Pick lawyers from our panel, Law Ministry tells autonomous bodies - The Economic Times

In a significant decision that will likely change the legal strategies of high-powered institutes and bodies such as the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, University Grants Commission, Indian Institutes of Management, Indian Institutes of Technology, and government medical and defence institutes, the law ministry has directed that these autonomous bodies must be represented only by lawyers empanelled by the department of legal affairs in cases where both the Union government and these bodies are parties.

The law ministry's letter, reviewed by ET, has been sent to all ministries. It marks a big shift in the way autonomous bodies can pick lawyers.
Sounds like nonsense.
