SC for uniformity in appointment, facilities for tribunals head
New Delhi: The Supreme Court Tuesday asked the Centre to bring uniformity in dealing with appointment, tenure and facilities for judges heading judicial or quasi-judicial tribunals saying failure to comply with its order would force it to stay such appointments.
A bench of justices G S Singhvi and S J Mukhopadhaya expressed its displeasure over lack of uniformity in the prevailing statutes governing the functioning of tribunals and asked the Centre to take corrective measures within eight weeks.
"We will stay all appointments till a uniform policy comes into existence," the bench told Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Paras Kuhad after going through the chart.
The ASG said the matter was under examination by the government.
"If the Prime Minister is apprised of the anomalies while the issue is kept pending in court, he will surely tell his officers to bring uniformity," the bench said adding "we are interested in evolving a uniform pattern to be fixed."
The court was informed that there were over 60 tribunals functioning in the country to be headed by such persons who are either sitting or retired judges or Chief Justices of apex court or High Courts.
