Governor suggests Indian Judicial Service

Says it will help meet shortage of judges and attract the best from law schools


Governor ESL Narasimhan has suggested introduction of Indian Judicial Service (IJS)on the lines of IAS and IPS to draw the cream of students from national law schools into the judiciary. Addressing a seminar on ‘e-governance in judiciary’, organized by the AP Administrative Tribunal, its advocates association and the AP Technology services, Narasimhan said the Indian Judicial Services would help in meeting the shortage of judges besides tapping the best brain leaving the portals of national law schools. He called for efforts to sell Indian Judicial Services as a brand name to attract young talent in law which being picked up by corporates at huge payout.

The Governor felt the IJS could be useful experiment to break the perception of ‘exclusivity’ attached to judiciary, as members of the service would be collaborates in governance. Otherwise, judiciary was looked as an exclusive fraternity to other organs of the government. He further said too many adjournments in court cases for odd reasons was the biggest challenge facing judiciary resulting in long delay in disposal of cases. Sometimes, adjournments were beyond the control of the judges. In this context, he wondered if a code of conduct could be evolved specifying the number of adjournments.

Sounding caution in implementation of e-governance in judiciary, the Governor said computer animation was extremely unsafe to recreate scenes of offence to aid in delivering judgments. There was no substitute to physical deposition or eyewitnesses. Similarly, computerization of in-camera proceedings in courts could have serious consequences, he added. High Court Judge VVVS Rao said Indian Courts were ‘forum non-convenience’ for various reasons, including poor judge strength. The ratio of judges in the country was 10.5 per million population against a norm of 50 per one million. Nearly 27.24 million cases were pending from subordinate courts to Supreme Court.
