That's outrageous outright! That's New India in the making. Yet to take the final shape. A minister hectoring the Supreme Court -- on what it should and shouldn't take up
<<Speaking on the New Delhi International Arbitration Centre (Amendment) Bill-2022 on Wednesday, Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju told Rajya Sabha that a constitutional body like Supreme Court should not be hearing “bail applications and frivolous PILs’’ at a time when pendency of cases is so high.>> (Excerpted from: < https://indianexpress.com/article/india/looking-at-case-pendency-supreme-court-shouldnt-take-up-bail-pleas-frivolous-pils-rijiju-in-rs-8325198/ >.) To be read together with: I. <<The Supreme Court has decided to tweak the listing process of cases. Under the new scheme, 10 transfer petitions, in which notice has already been issued, will be listed at the top of the board before the court on all five days of the week. This will be followed by 10 bail matters.>> (Ref.: < https://indianexpress.com/article/india/supreme-court-tweaks-case-listing-process-8286143/ >.) II. <<In his first month in office, Justice D Y Chandrachud has taken several key judicial and administrative decisions having a far-reaching impact such as deciding to examine the right to marriage of gay couples and ordering protection of an area in Varanasi's Gyanvapi complex where a 'shivling' was claimed to have been found. Justice Chandrachud, who has been credited with taking steps for digitisation of the judiciary, gave a green signal for operationalising an online RTI portal and making available an updated android version 2.0 of SC mobile application. The Chief Justice of India has also attempted to streamline the listing of cases by giving primacy to bail petitions and matrimonial transfer cases and decided that every apex court bench will hear 10 such pleas each before starting regular proceedings.>> (Ref.: < https://m.economictimes.com/news/india/justice-chandrachud-takes-key-judicial-administrative-decisions-in-his-first-month-as-cji/articleshow/96079573.cms >.) -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Green Youth Movement" group.
