Delhi district judiciary remains empty as DJS examinees lose case, but infra insufficient anyway

Six Delhi Judicial Service (DJS) examinees from 2011 have lost the case for their instatement in the city’s lower judiciary, due to a lack of courtrooms and infrastructure, reported the PTI.

The petitioners, who had secured a little over the cut-off ranks for appointment to the DJS, had argued that since there were a greater number of vacancies in the DJS than those advertised at the time they should be appointed against the extra vacancies, as Legally India had reported. The bench hearing their writs said:

The contention of the petitioners on the aspect of courtroom etc are mere surmises and conjectures based upon their own calculations and cannot form the basis of a judicial decision to accept the writ petitions. It would be appropriate to note that till date additional infrastructure in the form of building and courtrooms have not been made available.

It is unfortunate but true that the infrastructure is normally made available after the posts have been sanctioned and not before.
