Why was he not appointed to the Tribunal from the recommended list? Supreme Court reprimanded the central government

Amidst controversy over filling up vacancies in tribunals across the country, the Supreme Court has again reprimanded the central government. This time the Supreme Court has pulled up the government for appointing people from the waitlist to the tribunals instead of the persons recommended by the 'Search-cum-Selection Committee' (recommended list). The Supreme Court has asked the central government to make appointments to the tribunals within two weeks, as well as give reasons for not including the persons included in the recommended list.


The Supreme Court said that when the committee had prepared the list of the identified people and recommended it, then why the people included in the waitlist were appointed to the tribunal. The court said that it appears that people have been appointed 'according to the mind'. A bench headed by Chief Justice NV Ramana and Justice DY Chandrachud expressed displeasure over the vacancies in tribunals across the country and said the situation was pathetic. However, Attorney General KK Venugopal assured the bench that the Center would make appointments to the tribunal from the list of persons recommended by the selection committee in two weeks.

Let us inform you that about 250 posts are lying vacant in various Principal Tribunals and Appellate Tribunals. The top court was hearing petitions on the issue of vacancies in tribunals and the new law governing quasi-judicial bodies. In the last hearing also, the Supreme Court had reprimanded the government over the vacancies in the tribunal. Chief Justice NV Ramana had said that we feel that the government has no respect for this court. The CJI had warned that you are testing our patience.
