  11. Hi all, Its high time we started this thread for 2013. UPSC has done enough hoodwinking in the past one month to repeatedly take us from the depths of despair to the heights of ecstacy and back again with all the hype and pomp of a so called pattern change. For lack of stronger words, lets just sneer it away and look at what we can do to tame the gatekeeper, that is the prelims. I have been in this forum now for nearly a year, and one thing I can say that I have observed lately is the lack of serious activity. I remember furiously active posts a year back. It will only take a conscious and concerted effort from everyone in this community to maintain this tempo going to the very end. We are in this together, and lets keep it that way. The civil service exam is a Pilgrimage and everyone of us are fellow travellers in that great journey. Lets make that journey meaningful and worthwhile, irrespective of the outcomes. I suggest, (I can only suggest, it takes effort from everyone else) that we maintain this thread and keep posting valuable info about anything under the sun that we can later refer to for a quick revision. And lets keep speculations and drama of pattern changes and other gossips to other dedicated threads which we already have. Those are indeed needed for tension release and chill out. There is no questioning the fact that this forum is THE BEST thing that can happen to you if you are a serious aspirant. Lets augment it as much as we can as one awesome family. Lets wish everyone the very best and kick things off sooner than later. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. . It’s How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. -Rocky

  14. The Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill, 2010 The Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill seek to lay down enforceable standards of conduct for judges. The issue of Judicial Standards must be seen in the context of Art 124(4) and Art 124(5). It also requires judges to declare details of their and their family members' assets and liabilities. Importantly, it creates mechanisms to allow any person to complain against judges on grounds of misbehaviour or incapacity. Highlights of the Bill The Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill, 2010 requires judges to declare their assets, lays down judicial standards, and establishes processes for removal of judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts. Judges will be required to declare their assets and liabilities, and also that of their spouse and children. The Bill establishes the National Judicial Oversight Committee, the Complaints Scrutiny Panel and an investigation committee. Any person can make a complaint against a judge to the Oversight Committee on grounds of ‘misbehaviour’. A motion for removal of a judge on grounds of misbehaviour can also be moved in Parliament. Such a motion will be referred for further inquiry to the Oversight Committee. Complaints and inquiries against judges will be confidential and frivolous complaints will be penalised. The Oversight Committee may issue advisories or warnings to judges, and also recommend their removal to the President. The Oversight Committee shall consist of five persons with two serving and one retired judge, an appointed eminent person and the Attorney-General of India. Key Issues and Analysis The key issue is whether the balance between independence and accountability is maintained by the proposed mechanism in the Bill. The Oversight Committee has non-judicial members which might impinge on the independence of the judiciary. The Bill penalises anyone who breaches the confidentiality of complaints. It is questionable whether a penalty is needed for a frivolous complaint that remains confidential. The Scrutiny Panel has judges from the same High Court. This is different from the in-house procedure of the Supreme Court. The Oversight Committee has non-judicial members. The procedure of the Committee is not an in-house procedure of the judiciary. It is not clear whether the power of the Oversight Committee to impose minor measures is constitutionally valid. The Bill does not mention whether a judge has the right to appeal to the Supreme Court against an order of removal issued by the President after Parliament finds him guilty of ‘misbehaviour’. jkkasdkfsa
