1) your advocate has already issued you N0C

2) you can inform the court on 
Next date that you don't want to engage any 
advocate but shall be appearing in person 

3)court will grant you time to file your written statement

You can move an application under Order III Rule 1 of CPC along with an affidavit stating reasons for appearing as party in person to your case. 
You can also state that you have terminated the services of the advocate you had engaged and have already obtained No objection from him.

Hope you got it right.

Hi, there is no provision under code of civil procedure for represent as party in person.

2. You just filed a memo stating that you will permit to conduct the case party in person.

There is no specific section whereunder the application is to be filed. Since you have obtained NOC from your lawyer it should suffice.
