The Bar Council of Delhi in its meeting last week passed a resolution urging the collegium headed by Chief Justice DN Patel to consider names of some District Court judges who were allegedly superseded on the decision of elevation to the Delhi High Court.
The resolution states, "In fact, the District Judges are appointed on the basis of the seniority and unblemished record. The non-recommendation of these judges may bring dissatisfaction among the judges..."
Stating that such dissatisfaction is not conducive to the working of the judiciary, and that there are "sufficient vacancies" in Delhi High Court,
The Resolution urges the collegium to consider the superseded judges as well for elevation.
