The Solicitor General for India is subordinate to the Attorney General of India, who is the Indian government's chief legal advisor, and its primary lawyer in the Supreme Court of India. The Solicitor General for India is the second law officer of the country, assists the Attorney General. Unlike the Attorney General, the Solicitor General does not tender legal advice to the Government of India. His work is confined to appearing in the courts on behalf of the Union of India.
