SC to take up plea on Centre not clearing collegium recommendations, Legal News, ET LegalWorld – Legal Firms


The Supreme Court on Wednesday said that it would take up the plea filed by an NGO, Centre for PIL, against the central government for not clearing collegium recommendations.

When the matter was mentioned by advocate Prashant Bhushan before a bench headed by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, the CJI said that he would pass administrative orders and the same will be taken up.

Bhushan said that the plea was filed in 2018 and has not been listed so far. In its plea, the NGO has demanded that names of lawyers and judges who have been reiterated by the Supreme Court collegium for appointment as high court judges be cleared expeditiously for appointment by the central government.

The petition had highlighted many recommendations which were sent by the collegium but not acted upon by the Centre. The plea argued that the Centre’s failure to act on the files of those recommended by the collegium for appointment as judges shows utter disregard for the law laid down by the Supreme Court in the Second Judges case.
