SC toughens up tribunal appointment rules of retired judges, threatens stay

The Supreme Court threatened to stay the appointment of retired judges to tribunals across India blaming lack of action in bringing uniformity in their appointment process and service conditions, reported the Times of India.

Picking out Armed Forces Tribunal, National Commission for Dispute Redressal and National Green Tribunal as examples, a bench of justices GS Singhvi and C Nagappan said:

The disparity in service conditions results in compromising the dignity of the judges. Everyone tried to get a post which has five-year term. That compromises the dignity. Let this be stopped till Parliament considers the proposal for uniform tenure.
