The fight between the Government of India and the Supreme Court is building up. India’s judiciary, especially the Supreme Court seems to be hyperactive, and in the view of several people stepping into executive decisions. Further, the Supreme Court also struck down the parliament passed National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act as being constitutional but has not developed any alternative procedures that would provide transparency. The latest is the Supreme Court insisting on appointing judges who have had adverse intelligence reports or serious nature of complaints. Should Supreme Court be subject to review by the larger public or are they not subject any scrutiny whatsoever?
