SC rejects NJAC

supreme-court-650_650x488_51444744145Supreme Court today declared invalid the national judicial
appointments committee proposed by the Central Government after the arguments were heard by it way back on July 15. Union Law Minister Sadananda Gowd said a decision will be taken after consulting legal experts. Judges of high court and supreme court had been appointed
through a collegium consisting of chief justice and five senior judges since 1993. The UPA government introduced a bill on NJAC but the House rejected it and later NDA government got it passed in the Parliament
as all party members accepted amendments to the bill. However, objections were raised by the judges stating that it would curtail the independence of judiciary and the supreme court also declared the NJAC was against the spirit of the Constitution. Minister clarified that NJAC was raised due to certain lapses in the collegium. Congress decided to comment only after studying the apex court’s verdict.
