    As per the following judgement of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Bar Councils are PA's. The case was dismissed because of the peculiar nature of the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana coming under CIC jurisdiction and not under SIC jurisdiction.

    The details of Orissa Bar Council are:

    Secretary,
    Bar Council of Orissa,
    Kacheri Road,
    CUTTACK - 753 002
    Orissa
    Phones: (0671) - 2608851 (Off), 2607885 (Fax)
    2364084 (R)

    Best is to call them and ask who is the PIO.

    Yor RTI Application will have to be as per Orissa RTI Rules which are available with the amendments here:

    I think state bar councils will be central public authority and hence RTI rules of central govt will apply. They are constituted under central govt act and not state govt act. Pl refer:

    Locate PIO:

    Central Govt appln:
