SC to hear plea for ‘public body’ appointment today

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Monday will hear a plea seeking the formation of a “public body”, for the fair appointment of judges in High Courts and the apex court of the country.

The plea said the mechanism of appointment of judges, independent of the executive and the judiciary, was ‘killed’ even before it was allowed to take birth in the judgment in the NJAC case.

A bench led by Chief Justice of India TS Thakur agreed to hear the National Lawyers Campaign for Judicial Transparency and Reforms, represented by advocates Mathew J Nedumpara and AC Philip.

The plea also said that there was no effective mechanism to address complaints of misconduct against judges.
