SC warns Central government to implement court recommendations in one week else it will either close down the tribunals or take over the appointments and initiate contempt


New Delhi, Sept 6 (ILNS) The Supreme Court today came down heavily on the Central government for enacting the Tribunal Reforms Act, 2021 in an arbitrary manner, reducing the terms of members and chairmen of Tribunals and being identical to the “earlier law struck down” by the apex court.

A Bench comprising Chief Justice N.V. Ramana, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud and Justice L. Nageswara Rao, while issuing notice on the petition filed by Congress leader and MP Jairam Ramesh, said the government “appears hell bent on not respecting the Supreme Court orders”.

While noting the fact that the Central government appointed nine Supreme Court judges within seven days of receiving recommendation for the same, the apex court asked, “Why is it taking one-and-a-half year to appoint tribunal members and chairpersons?”

Justice DY Chandrachud said, “The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) and the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) are cornerstones for the economy of the country. These are important for rehabilitation of corporate entities. Important cases are not being heard because of vacancies. Not appointing judges at NCLT and NCLAT creates a very critical position.”

Giving one more week time to the Centre (till Monday) to implement the SC recommendations, the Bench said, “We do not want confrontation with the government, but we will be left with no other option but either to close down the tribunals or take over the appointments and initiate contempt, if the government does not implement the recommendations.”/ILNS/SNG
