All the stake holders, legislature, executive and judiciary, bar included are required to collectively participate in regulatory judicial council to take care of the entire justice delivery system. Such a judicial system is successfully working in California, where the SC Chief Justice is assisted by nominees from the legislature, subordinate judiciary and bar council. India too needs to constitute National and State Judicial Councils by involving all the providers and the consumers. In the interest of independent judiciary, let the SC review it’s “Collegium system” and constitute National and State Judicial Councils.
