CA who is not in practice, can become lawyer take license and practice as advocate. BAR council is not having any objection for this.
ICAI has allowed dual COP of ICAI & BAR COUNCIL
But BAR council has not allowed such dual COP, as practicing CAs will eat away market of practicing lawyers. 
But there is no restriction over CA who is not in practice, he can very well enter into law practice, best example is Advocate Harish Salve.
