MINISTER OF STATE FOR LAW AND JUSTICE AND CORPORATE AFFAIRS

(a) : A comprehensive proposal was formulated for constitution of All India Judicial Service (AIJS) which was recommended by the Committee of Secretaries in November, 2012. The proposal along with views received from High Courts and States was included in the agenda for the Joint Conference of Chief Ministers and Chief Justices of High Courts held on 05th April, 2015.

(b) : The Supreme Court of India, vide its judgment of 13.11.1991 in the matter of All India Judges Association versus Union of India and others, recommended that Government should examine the feasibility of implementing the recommendations of the Law Commission for setting up of All India Judicial Service. They have reiterated this later in their judgment of 24.11.1993 in the same case.

(c) : Keeping in view the divergence of opinion among the States and High Courts on constitution of All India Judicial Service (AIJS), the Government has undertaken the consultative process to arrive at a common ground. However, no progress has been made on the subject.
