Rule 148 – Persons who may represent minors

(1) A minor may be represented for all or any of the purposes of the Act by his/her guardian (if any) appointed by a court of competent jurisdiction or, if there is no guardian so appointed by his/her parents or by a person who is his/her guardian under the provisions of the Guardianship of Infants Act, 1964, or by trustees under the provisions of Section 57 of the Succession Act, 1965.

(2) Where it appears to the Authority in the course of any proceeding under the Act that the person representing a minor has an interest adverse to, or conflicting with, the interest of the minor or that it is in the interest of the minor that some other person should be appointed to represent him/her, it may refuse to proceed until another person is appointed to represent the minor in the proceedings.
