Very improper that someone will submit a plea, state that make me a high court judge, Supreme Court stated
The Supreme Court Wednesday stated it is “really incorrect” that someone files a petition and states that he needs to be made a judge of the high court.
A bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) SA Bobde observed that no one can end up being a high court judge by saying “I wish to be”.
The observations of the bench, also comprising Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian, came while hearing a plea filed by some judicial officers from Uttar Pradesh.
The bench consented to hear the petition and provided notifications to its secretary general and others, including the Centre, seeking their actions on the plea which has actually looked for reconsideration of the matter associating with their elevation as judges of the Allahabad High Court.
” Issue notification returnable within 4 weeks,” the bench stated in its order.
After issuing notice in the matter, the CJI observed, “This is something brand-new. I do not think any person ought to come and state select me as a high court judge”.
” You do not become a high court judge by stating that I want to be,” the bench stated. “We discover it really incorrect that somebody will submit a writ petition and say that make me a high court judge.”
One of the seven petitioners is a retired judicial officer of Uttar Pradesh.
