Dear client,
You didn't mention the category of case. What type of case you want to file against a person. If you file a criminal case against a person in the form of Fir before police. Then state has responsible to punish as per law and for conducting the proceedings in the court of law the state governments appointments prosecutor /govt lawyer to conduct case. Same as where state governments is a party then govt lawyer conducted the case on behalf of state. So in case where both parties are private no role of govt lawyer.

If you have filed FIR govt will fight case, and you can appoint your lawyer too to watch your case and to assist the govt. If you hv filed a complaint case in court then you have to appoint a private lawyer
