Appointment of Judges to the Higher Judiciary During the Pandemic—II
This is the second part of a two-part series that examines how the pandemic has affected the process for appointment of judges to the higher judiciary.
The impact of the appointment process for high court and Supreme Court judges following the recommendations of the collegium is examined. The functioning of the collegium itself was not significantly affected by the pandemic. However, how many of its recommendations have been implemented by the union government, and how quickly, point to the need for the judiciary and the government to work together to ensure optimal judicial functioning.
