Hearing on NJAC by SC bench today

Two days after the government notified the controversial NJAC law to remove the collegium system of appointment of judges, a Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court will commence hearing from on Wednesday to examine the validity of new measure and is likely to consider passing an interim order to staying the operation of the Act. A three-judge bench of the apex court on April 7 had referred to a five-judge Constitution Bench, a batch of petitions challenging the validity of National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act to replace the two-decade- old collegium system of appointing judges to higher judiciary. The court had refused to stay the implementation of law with the observation that all the issues arising out of the petitions would be decided by the Constitution Bench.
