By IndianMandarins- 07 Jan 2019


The government has no plans to increase the age of retirement of judges of the Supreme Court from 65 years to 67 years and that of high courts from 62 years to 65 years. It may be noted that Approx 36% posts of judges are currently vacant.


A Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice report had recommended raising the retirement age of judges. The Standing Committee, in its 99th report tabled in the Parliament on Thursday, made the recommendation in view of a large number of vacancies and pendency of cases in the higher judiciary.
