 Is there any cogent reason why the judiciary should not be corrupt? We have accepted that netas and babus are corrupt. Are those manning judiciary of special type and have they come from another planet? Are their needs different than those of netas and babus? Remember that salary has nothing to do with the level of corruption. I as an individual have been advocating that corruption should be legalised. Standards and rates should be prescribed. Then Jai Ho!

how can judges will be free from temptation .

Prashant bhushan ( PF case ) submission show , like policemen shield each other as mutual help ( look at soharbudin fake encounter) , judges also shield each other from exposure .

Look at punjab High court

under current report show the procedure for getting a seat on the bench

corruption has many shades some do not fall under the strict definition .

for excellent definition refer ot klinton case of white internee

I think SC has also suggested legalising corruption.
