Dr Abhishek Singhvi, INC’s National Spokesperson, | Sr.Adv| :
Delighted that what I have consistently written on over 25 yrs is now being implemented by Supreme Court especially Justice Kaul.
Crux of delays in judicial appointments (40% HC &25% lower court seats are vacant!!) is absence of time limits at each stage of recco process.
Beating backlog and winning battle of bulge needs time limits at each stage-recco of High Court collegium consd by state Govt; then decision by Supreme Court Collegium; then central Govt decision; if returned &reiterated by SC, 2nd decision by central govt (which then has zero discretion)
