His duties are to advise the government on legal matters to perform other legal duties which are referred or assigned to him by the President and to discharge the functions conferred on by him by the Constitution.

In order to be appointed as the Attorney General a person must be qualified to be appointed as a judge of the Supreme Court.

Though he is not a member of the Cabinet he has the right to speak in both the Houses of Parliament and any committee thereof, but he has no right to vote.

In the performance of his official duties the Attorney General shall have a right of audience in all the courts in the territory of India.

The Attorney General represents the government but is allowed to take up private practice provided the other party is not the state.

Because of this he is not paid salary but a retainer to be determined by the President.

The Attorney General gets a retainer equivalent to the salary of a judge of a Supreme Court.
