New Delhi, April 13: Even as a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court will commence hearing on Wednesday the challenge to the constitutiol validity of the Constitutiol Amendment Act and an Act setting up the tiol Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) to replace the collegium system for appointment of judges, the government on Monday notified both laws.

“The government today notified the tiol Judicial Appointments Commission Act, 2014 and the Constitution (Ninety-ninth Amendment) Act, 2014 for bringing in a change in the existing system for appointment of judges in Supreme Court and High Courts,” said an official release.

“The Acts provide for a transparent and broad-based process of selection of judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts by the tiol Judicial Appointments Commission,” it said, adding the NJAC, chaired by the Chief Iustice of India, will comprise two seniormost apex court judges, the Union Law and Justice minister and two eminent persons - thus having an equal number of judicial and non-judicial members.
