Supreme Court seeks public opinion on collegium system of appointing judges

After ruling out making “wholesale changes” in the collegium system of appointment of judges for higher judiciary, the Supreme Court on Thursday sought public opinion on improvement in the existing system.

The apex court invited suggestions from public to be given on the website of Ministry of Law & Justice till November 13.

An apex court constitution bench headed by Justice AS Khehar said that all the suggestions should reach the ministry of law and justice till 5 pm on November 13, which in turn will forward them to senior counsel Arvind Dattar and Additional Solicitor General Pinki Anand to collate them.

All the suggestions will be limited on the point of transparency in the working of the collegium, eligibility criteria for the selection of judges, setting up of a permanent secretariat of the collegium and the procedure for entertaining the complaints in respect of the candidates being considered for judgeship.
