Appointment of Judges

The Law Commission has, inter alia, suggested in its 214th Report that the primacy of the Chief Justice of India and the power of the executive to make appointment of Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts should be restored. The Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee had also recommended restoration of pre-1993 position wherein the executive and the judiciary both were involved and the executive had primacy in the matter of appointment of Judges of the higher Courts. The Committee also suggested that appointment of Judges could also be entrusted to a wider body other than the Collegium with representation from both judiciary and the executive.


The Government is in the process of preparing a road map for judicial reforms in the country. For this purpose, the Government has begun to hold wide consultations. A final view on this matter will be taken thereafter.


This information was given by Dr. M.Veerappa Moily, Minister of Law and Justice, in the Lok Sabha today in a written reply.
