SC thwarted in its constitutional objective- II

  1. The SC verdict refers to a speech by sitting Supreme Court judge, Justice J. Chelameswar, in 2014 about the decline in the stature of a Supreme Court inundated by routine appeals
  2. HC certificate: Parties ignore the fact that a certificate of the High Court is required to appeal to the Supreme Court
  3. Exception is the rule: Only in exceptional circumstances would the Supreme Court admit a case without the High Court’s certificate but the exception has become the rule now
  4. Result: More and more unsuccessful people are encouraged to have another go at it by approaching the Supreme Court
