Judges clamour for post-retirement adjudication, says Arun Jaitley

BJP suggests a two-year gap between retirement of judges and their assuming positions on various tribunals, to avoid the “clamour” for post retirement positions among judges. Of the 21 judges who retired from the SC since 2008, 18 joined various commissions and tribunals.

Former law minister Arun Jaitley says:

This clamour for post-retirement jobs is adversely affecting the impartiality of the judiciary... When I was a minister, I would be wary of meeting retiring judges for the fear that he would hand me his bio-data.

Now through judicial verdicts post-retirement jobs are being created... We are the only country in the world where judges appoint judges [Express with PTI]
