Lower court judges’ conduct: Government gets 2 weeks more for publishing gazette

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Monday gave more two weeks’ time to the government to publish a gazette notification on the rules determining discipline and conduct of lower court judges.
The full member bench of the Appellate Division, led by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, passed the order following a time-petition filed by Attorney General Mahbubey Alam.

Earlier, on May 15, the SC gave one more week to issue the gazette.

On May 8, the SC gave one more week to issue the gazette.

On April 4, the SC extended time up to May 8 in this connection.

On March 14, it extended the time by two weeks for issuing the gazette. Before that, the Court, on February 27, gave the government two weeks to publish the gazette as it failed to publish it in time.

The court, on February 5, ordered the authorities concerned to issue the gazette notification by February 12.
On November 24, 2016, it gave the government one week to publish the gazette notification.

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.
