Bengaluru: The BBMP has decided to rejig its legal cell after incurring High Court’s wrath over several matter.

The civic body has begun the process of replacing Keshav Deshpande, the Head of its legal division, who will turn 72 in August. Deshpande has served as the head since December 2012 and his term was extended twice.

According to a BBMP advertisement, the municipal body is looking for a retired district or sessions court judge or a practising advocate with a minimum of 10 years of experience in service law, labour law, land law, and revenue law. The applicant should not be older than 65 years.

The legal cell, which comprises around 100 empanelled advocates, is in charge of vacating stay orders against the civic body and providing legal advice. The BBMP has recently been under criticism from the courts, with judges expressing their dissatisfaction with officials who show up to sessions without having done their homework.
