18,000 judges neglected by 7th pay commission; judges association asks SC for separate pay commission

The All India Judges Association’s (AIJA) petition in the Supreme Court for a separate pay commission for lower court judge is up for response by the central government, reported Mint.

A bench of chief justice HL Dattu and justices Shiva Kirti Singh and Amitava Roy issued notice to the centre, in the case, yesterday.

AIJA’s petition states that there is no provision for increasing the pay scale of lower court judges in the seventh pay commission, thus neglecting 18,000 Indian judges.

The AIJA has prayed for directions to set up an independent pay commission - the All India Judicial Commission - to review the service conditions of the lower judiciary, which includes pay scale, pension and retirement age.
