President bats for BJP’s all-India judicial service to pick judges

New Delhi: Regarding the appointment of judges, President Ram Nath Kovind spoke on Saturday in favor of establishing an all-India judicial service for the recruitment and appointment of judges at all levels of the judiciary that has not been tested.

Affirming that the independence of the judiciary is non-negotiable and without watering it down in the slightest, “Can you find a better way to choose judges for the higher judiciary?

For example, there may be an All-India Judicial Service that can select, nurture and nurture the right talent from the lower to the higher levels. “President Kovind added that there are other,” better proposals for reforming the system. ” could. Ultimately, the President said that “the aim should be to strengthen the mechanism of justice”.

The National Judicial Appointment Commission had central government fingerprints on it.

In his farewell speech at the end of the two-day deliberations on 72 the judiciary, legislative and executive branches work harmoniously and in unison.

Referring to the “high bar” that the chief judges have set for themselves, the President said: “It is also up to the judges to exercise the utmost discretion in their statements in the courtrooms. Indiscreet statements, even if they are made with good intentions, leave room for dubious interpretations in order to overflow the judiciary. “

In order to support his position, the President referred to a “profound observation” by the US judge Judge Frankfurter, who had said in a judgment: “Courts are not representative bodies. They are not a good reflex of a democratic society. Its essential characteristic is the distance based on independence. History teaches that the independence of the judiciary is at risk when courts are caught up in the passions of the day and primary responsibility in choosing between competing political, economic and
social pressure. “

In recent months, the Supreme Court had made some critical remarks on the Pegasus matter, the handling of the investigation in Lakhimpur Kheri that mowed down farmers, air pollution in Delhi and the center’s delay in court hearings.

With adjournments frequent, CJI said prosecutors, attorneys and law enforcement agencies need to work together to negotiate the cases.

CJI Ramana said that Prosecutor General KK Venugopal’s proposal to restructure the judicial system and change the hierarchy of courts should be taken into account by the government. He said there had been no serious study since independence that looked closely at what the structural hierarchy of the judiciary in India should look like.
