As the accountability of the judiciary become a question mark in various times, the need for a law preserving the standard of the system was inevitable. It is high time that a law should be passed for this. Now the Union Government has approved the much hyped Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill, 2010.
Now the Judges of Supreme Court and High Court shall declare their assets. This will bring about transparency in the system and will promote confidence in the system among general public.
The Bill also provides method for entertaining enquiries and complaints against the judges. For this purpose special committes have been empowered under this Bill which will enquire into the matter and submit report.
Any how it can be concluded that besides all hue and cry, this Bill will now go to Parliament for approval.
