New Delhi, Aug.12 (ANI): Minister of Law and Justice Dr.M.Veerappa Moily on Thursday informed the Lok Sabha that pursuant to the recommendations of the Law Commission of India in its 1st, 8th and 11th reports, the directions of the Supreme Court of India and the guidelines recommended by the First National Judicial Pay Commission, the Government is seized with the matter of creation of an All India Judicial Service.
"Since the All India Judicial Service would be common to the Union and the States and requires consent of the State Governments and High Courts, their views/comments were sought," the Minister said.
Dr. Moily further informed that the State Governments, in principle, concurred with the proposal for the formation of All India Judicial Service. However, before giving effect to the formation of All India Judicial Service, a comprehensive deliberation needed to be held.
He said that it is expected that creation of such a service through competitive examination, would attract brilliant young men and women and thus best talent all over the country would come to the judiciary, as in other All India Services, which would improve the overall justice delivery system.
