Judicial Appointments Conundrum Pre-NJAC Verdict

99th Amendment Act 2014 replaces Collegium System with NJAC (2/2)

  1. The Attorney-General (Mukul Rohtagi) & Sr. Advocate (Fali Nariman) have locked horns on the bill.
  2. Interestingly, AG says that the court cannot test the  constitutional validity of the NJAC until the law was notified. Prez. has given its assent to the bill but Gov. has not yet notified.
  3. Fali Nariman held a view that – “The moment an enactment comes into operation, it becomes law and can be challenged on any permissible grounds.”
