Because every district court has some experienced and aged advocates. But they advocates are not declared as senior advocate by any authority or judge.

A designated Senior Advocate is an advocate who recommended by the judges of the Hon’ble High Court and Supreme Court due to his knowledge and work experience. Designation is also depending of the place of the practice. If an advocate is practicing in Supreme Court with an expert knowledge, then only judges of Supreme Court can appoint him/her as designated senior advocate and if an advocate is practicing in High Court with expert knowledge then only judges of high court can appoint as designated senior advocate. Designation of Senior Advocate is only for Supreme Court or High court advocates. An advocate of district court never designate as Senior Advocate.
