Supreme Court criticises Centre

The Supreme Court of India has again slammed the Center for returning its recommendations for appointment of judges in various courts. The top court said that sending back the names sent to the government for the second time was in violation of its earlier direction.

The Apex Court gave strict advice to the Central Government and without even mentioning that they had struck down the National Judicial Appointments Commission Act (NJAC), the top court also said that the Parliament has the right to make laws, but the laws made are subject to the scrutiny of the court. It is important that the law laid down by this court is followed, otherwise people will follow the law which they think is right.

For the unversed, a tussle has been going on between the Central Government and the Apex Court regarding sending back the file of appointment of judges to the Supreme Court collegium. In November, the government was reported to have returned 20 files on the appointment of judges to the collegium. It was also said that the collegium should reconsider these names.

Reportedly, the government had sent back the files to the collegium on November 25. Not only this, strong objection was also raised about the recommended names. Of these 20 files, 11 were fresh files and 9 were re-sent by the Supreme Court Collegium.

The issue of delay in appointment of judges despite the recommendation of the collegium was heard in the Supreme Court in November. The Supreme Court acknowledged that there has been a delay of months by the Center in considering the appointment of judges proposed by the collegium. The Supreme Court remarked that the government appears to be unhappy that the National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) has not passed the constitutional muster.

Earlier also SC had said that collegium system is working well, don’t derail it. They also said that it has become a fashion for retired judges to comment on earlier decisions of the Collegium, whereas the Collegium is the most transparent institution. A bench of Justice MR Shah and Justice CT Ravikumar had observed that the collegium does not function on the basis of someone having excessive interest in the private life of others and also said that they do not want to comment on the statement of former judges.
