UNSTARRED QUESTION NO-710
ANSWERED ON-04.03.2013


Increasing the retirement age of High Court Judges

710 .    SHRI D. BANDYOPADHYAY:

(a)    whether Government is contemplating to increase the retirement age of High Court Judges to 65 years to make it at par with that of the Supreme Court Judges; and

(b)    if so, whether it would adversely affect the possibility of competent Chief Justices of well known and prestigious High Courts leaving their present assignments to join the Supreme Court which would involve displacement from their present locations without the incentive of additional years of service?

 
ANSWER


MINISTER OF LAW AND JUSTICE
(DR. ASHWANI KUMAR)

(a)     : The Constitution (One Hundred and Fourteenth Amendment) Bill, 2010 which provides for increasing the retirement age of Judges of High Courts from 62 to 65 years was taken up for discussion in the Lok Sabha on 28.12.2011. However, the discussion has remained inconclusive. The Bill would bring the retirement age of High Court Judges at par with that of the Supreme Court Judges.

(b) : No Sir. The Supreme Court is the highest Court of the land and the Judgeship of this Court is considered very prestigious. The increase in the retirement age of High Court Judges should not in any way affect the selection of the competent Chief Justices as Judges of the Supreme Court.

1. AM(Staff), as Chairman of the Cadre Restructuring Committee, extended a hearty welcome to all members of the Cadre Restructuring Committee and introduced two new official side member joined as ED(IR) in place of Adv.(IR) and EDE(N). He advised that guidelines issued by DOP&T.MOF for in-house cadre restructuring of Group ‘C’ categories should be followed. He further stated that there are 2.41 lakh vacancies in Indian Railway out of which 1.30 lakh are being filled up. Railways can identify redundant categories and vacant posts in these non-safety categories can be considered for surrender against matching savings in the current cadre restructuring exercise. 

2. The Staff Side also welcomed new members of Official Side. They pointed out that there has already been delay in issue of cadre restructuring orders. They stated that orders for cadre restructuring should be issued early and these orders may also be effective from the date of effect of orders of cadre restructuring of ALPs i.e. 01-05-2010. However, Official Side stated that implementation of cadre restructuring with retrospectively effect is not feasible due to surrender of posts against matching savings. 

2.1 The Staff side reiterated that restructuring for Safety categories should be exempted from matching surrender in totality. However, they were apprised by Official Side about Board’s decision regarding cap of 10% as per which increase in percentages through cadre restructuring upto 10% in the apex scale of the safety category will be met through revenue (financial implications as per present DA rates @ 72% would be Rs. 121.10 Cr.) and increase beyond 10% would be offset by matching surrender of posts as in the case of non-safety categories as per standard norms of cadre restructuring. 

3. After detailed discussions, keeping in view various aspects like cadre structure, feeding cadres, inter-grade ratio etc., the Committee recommended the revised percentage distribution of posts for the categories discussed during the meeting as under:
