On February 16, 2022, Supreme Court rued the knee jerk actions in filling up vacant posts in tribunals, stating that, bureaucracy has been taking up this issue lightly.
What is the issue?
Supreme court has been asking the central government to make appointments in tribunals, which are facing a crunch of presiding officers, judicial and technical members. As per data provided in August 2021, about 250 posts are lying vacant in multiple key tribunals and appellate tribunals in India.
In its affidavit filed in September 2021, central government had maintained that it has made 84 appointments in six tribunals including NCLT and ITAT and no recommendations of Search cum Selection Committees (SCSC) is pending with it, then. Government had also given the chart containing details of appointments made in Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT), Telecom Disputes and Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT), National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (APTEL), National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) and Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT). During 2020 and 2021, total of 84 appointments were made to various tribunals.
Supreme Court has been raising concern over Government’s lackadaisical attitude towards large number of vacancies in tribunals and High Courts. As on August 1, 2021, there are 455 vacancies in High Courts.
