SC gives govt more time to publish judges’ conduct rules gazette
The Supreme Court has again extended the date for the government to issue a gazette notification on the disciplinary and conduct rules for lower court judges. Chief Justice SK Sinha-led Supreme Court bench on Tuesday accepted a time-petition by Attorney General Mahbubey Alam and gave the government until May 8 to issue the gazette, reports UNB. The apex court had extended the deadline by a week on March 28. On March 14, it extended the time by two weeks for issuing the gazette. On February 27, it gave the government two weeks to publish the gazette. The court on February 5 ordered the authorities concerned to issue the gazette by February 12. On November 24 last year it gave the government one week to publish the gazette. The lower judiciary was officially separated in November 2007 but the disciplinary rules for lower court judges are yet to be formulated. On December 2, 1999, the Supreme Court in the Masdar Hossain case issued a seven-point directive, including formulating separate disciplinary rules, for the lower court judges. The Law Ministry on May 7, 2015 sent the draft of the rules to the Supreme Court which is similar to the Government Servants (Discipline and Appeal) Rules 1985.
