New Delhi, Sep 22 (UNI) The Supreme Court today stayed till further orders the postings of 30 judges of Punjab subordinate courts due to bungling in marking of the answer sheets.

Additional Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium told a bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justices P Sathasivam and J M Panchal that a three-judge committee of the High Court by a majority decision has found that the selection of the candidates do not inspire confidence.
