Supreme Court of India

SC directed the Government that they can’t simply sit on Lokpal’s Appointment


Rapping the Government for delaying the Lokpal’s appointment despite past assurances, the Supreme Court of India on Monday directed the Attorney General of India to inform the Court on the next date, the steps taken to make the Lokpal’s appointment. The matter has been adjourned for July 19.

The Court was hearing an application filed by Common Cause, seeking to amend its Writ Petition, which had been filed to question the entire selection process of Chairperson and Members of the Lokpal, initiated under “the Search Committee (Constitution, Terms and Conditions of appointment of members and the manner of selection of Panel of names for appointment of Chairperson and Members of Lokpal) Rules, 2014” framed under “the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013”.
