2500 trains (on an average) will now have Railway Protection Force personnel onboard on a daily basis. too,IT-BHU, When a toxic particle from the munitions lands in a target area,having been appointed chief justice (or a judge) of the Supreme Court/high court at….do swear in the name of god/solemnly affirm thatI will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of India as by law establishedthat I will uphold the sovereignty and integrity of Indiathat I will duly and faithfully and to the best of my abilityknowledge and judgment perform the duties of my office without fear or favouraffection or ill-will and that I will uphold the Constitution and the laws There cannot be any better protection to a judge than the one given by the Constitution There is no question of any person either improving upon the protection or in any way detracting from such protectionwhether by any executive action or even by legislative measuresunless the relevant provisions of the Constitution itself are amended Such an impregnable protection and assured term of office is a mark of the faith and confidence reposed in the judges by the Constitution It is thus incumbent on them to function with abilitycompetenceimpartiality and fearlessness The institution of the court is sustained by the faith and confidence reposed in it by the peopleespecially by the litigant public The judicial wing of the state thus cannot fail the people in this regard It is with this faith and confidence that litigants approach the court for any relief It is obviousthereforethat when once that trust and confidence is erodedthere are no seekers of justice or persons coming for relief before the courts of law and there cannot be any further justification for the existence of courts In the scheme of our Constitutioncourts are here to stay and judiciary has a unique and specified role to play There is no question of the state being envisaged without the judicial wing It is a well thought out scheme and design that there should be checks and balances on the functioning of all wings of the state Ensuring that the executive and the legislative wings of the state not only adhere to the assigned roles but also do not transgress or exceed the constitutional limitationsis the responsibility of the judicial wing of the state Effective and purposeful functioning of the judiciary for achieving this object should be ensured at all times It is for the judiciary to inspire at all times the confidence of the litigant public through its own conduct There cannot be any discordant note on this There can never be an impression conveyed or created in the minds of the people that judges of this country are in any way either wanting in this task or are afraid in any manner in performing their duties and functions Open to disclosing assets In this backgroundon the issue of the judges of the superior courts disclosing their assets or making it known to the public at large or as the phrase goes throwing it into public domainit is clear that there need be no hesitation or reluctance on the part of the judges either to disclose their assets or to make available the information to the public at large In factit is a misnomer to think that the judges of the superior courts are not ready to disclose their assets The judges of the high courts are appointed after being drawn from the Bar or on promotion from the subordinate judiciary in the ratio of 2:1 which means that for every promotee judgethere will be two judges appointed directly from the Bar Judges promoted from the subordinate judiciary happen to be occupants of the post of district judge and every district judge is required to declare his/her assets every yearas part of the conditions of service The judges drawn from the Bar and appointed to the high courts would all have disclosed their income for the previous five years This is an essential requirement The particulars of assets of all appointees from the Bar would thus be available for anyone to see Moreoverthe norms and guidelines conventionally followed while elevating persons from the Bar to the Bench demand that the appointee be an assesseeunder the Income Tax Act with a certain assured level of income All the information about the assets of both the promotees and the fresh appointees is thus already in public domain till they assume office as judges of superior courts Why shouldthereforethere be any reluctance or hesitation or even an objection on the part of any judge to disclose particulars of the assets acquired by him/her after assuming the office of judgeas thereafter the only income of the judge is salaryunless the judge has any other source of income even after the assumption of office as judge In a situation of this natureif any impression is created that the judges of the superior courts are reluctant to disclose the particulars of their assetsit undoubtedly creates an impression in the minds of the general public and the litigant public that the judge so reluctant to disclose the particulars has something to cover up or hide An impression of this nature is most damaging to the image of the judiciary and the institution of courts and even to the individual judges It is high time that any such impression is immediately removed It is a truism to say that a majority of the judges of the superior courts are definitely not reluctant or unwilling to disclose the particulars of their assets In factmost of themit may be safely assumedare even willing to declare it voluntarily without there being any element of compulsion and some have even already disclosed the particulars of their assets In the light of thisit is fair to say that the views expressed by the Chief Justice of India are not necessarily representative of the views of all the judges of the superior courts of this country In factthe Supreme Court of our country has no supervisory power or control over the high courts in the scheme of our Constitution High courts are independent and function in accordance with the constitutional provisions and in terms of the applicable statutory provisions The Supreme Court only exercises appellate jurisdiction over the high courts in specified areas as provided for under the Constitution and the laws The law declared by the Supreme Court is binding on all the courts it is a constitutional mandate in terms of Article 141 of the Constitution The Supreme Court has also the most exclusive power in passing such decrees and making such orders as are necessary for doing complete justice between litigants in any cause or matter before it and it is to be enforced throughout the territory of India in the manner prescribed by law Other than such a constitutional provision and subject to these very constitutional provisionsthe high courts function independently Every judge of the superior courts of this country functions independently and has every right and duty to express his/her opinion without fear or favour Even while functioning on the judicial sidea judge may dissent from a majority opinion and express his/her dissenting opinion It is only afortiori so in non-judicial matters Hithertoit is only the opinion of the Chief Justice of India that is expressed in public and the Chief Justice of India is the personwho has been reacting to the doubts and queries of the people as articulated in different sections of the media No one else from the judiciary has expressed any opinion to the contrary and silence in such a situation obviously amounts to consent or agreement And yetthe fact of the matter is that judges of the superior courts of this country are not reluctant and hesitant to declare their assets On the other handa majority of them must be ready and willing to do so There should be no question of any judge either hiding or taking shelter under any non-disclosure provision or under a provision to ensure confidentiality or secrecy of the information The protection provided to the judges of the superior courts under the Constitution itself is good enough and sufficient to ensure the independence of the judiciary and fearless functioning of the judges There is absolutely no question of any other person or any other organ creating a sense of apprehensionfear or possible harassment in the minds of the judges by use or misuse of any information that one may come across or might fall into the hands of the litigant public of this country There is no dichotomy between the public and private life for a judge The conduct of a judge should be impeccableshould be one of inspiring confidence of the litigant public and people of this countrybe it in the course of his/her judicial functioning or outside the court Every judge of the superior court is also a public servant and accountable to the citizens of this country like any other public servant There is an inalienable relationship between efficacy and openness Efficacy of our courts is due to the open conduct of court proceedings Judges function in open courts and the proceedings of a court can be watched by any member of the public and is open to scrutiny Transparency is the hallmark of our judicial system That is partly the reason why the efficacy of courts is generally accepted In such a systemthere can never be any reluctance or hesitation on the part of the judges to disclose their asset particulars There should not be Transparency in judicial functioning necessarily implies transparency in the matter of acquisition of assets by the judges as much as in the functioning of a judge inside the court Such transparency is expected from all other public servants holding high public office in the other two organs of the statenamelythe executive and the legislature When such is the casemembers of the judiciary cannot plead immunity or claim exception from being accountable to the people On the other handit is imperative that the judiciary should conduct itself in such a manner that judicial functioning becomes more transparent and more accountablewithout which people may not indefinitely continue to retain the faithtrust and confidence that they repose in the courts and judges of our country Judges code of conduct There have been a few unpalatable incidents in the context of some sitting and past judgesthe allegation being that they had indulged in some questionable transactions It is in the wake of this that a suitable legislation was contemplated to plug the loopholesif any Certain of these alleged demeanours received copious attention in the media Reportedlysuch rather unsavoury episodes seem to be on the increase As a consequencea suitable response from the appropriate organ of the state was only to be expected It has come in the form of some measures contained in the Billwhich failed to get tabled in Parliament because of some lacunae pointed out by the members That being sothere is absolutely no question of one organ or wing of the state trying to interfere with the functioning of the other organ or wing of the state except to the extent of its own assigned role under the Constitution There is no gainsaying the fact that it is the duty of the legislature to legislate and usher in laws to meet the requirements of a changing society from time to time The hopes and aspirations of the people are never staticby reason of which the legislature needs to be dynamic if it is not to become anachronistic That does not mean that the legislature enjoys the prerogative to ignore the stipulations of the Constitution Likewiseit is the constitutional duty of the judiciary to judicially review the legislative action and statutory provisions strictly by the touchstone provided in the Constitution The validity or otherwise of the legislative provision is thus established through a constitutional process and not simply arbitrarily as anyone can see It needs to be again emphasised that each organ of the state is duty bound to perform its assigned role according to prescribed normswhich means that there is no trade-off or exchange of their respective roles It is also very necessary for the high constitutional functionaries to bear in mind that they should not conduct or act in a manner which can in any way disable them from performing their duties and functions assigned to them At any rateso far as the judges are concerneda judge cannot and should not by his/her conduct and expressions outside the court disable himself/herself from his/her duty to be performed as a judge inside the court An article of this naturewhich is otherwise not common or usual for a judge to penhas become necessary only to convey to the people of this country that the impression created as of now is not necessarily the correct impression; that the judges of the superior courts of this country do not necessarily subscribe to the views and apprehensions expressed hitherto; that they have views and opinions otherwise than what has been conveyed to the public at large so far The judges have nothing to fear; they have nothing to hide and they have no hesitation to disclose particulars of their assets and even for throwing open the information to the public domain In factit is for the judges of this country to act and provide information even voluntarily IndeedI humbly appeal to all my brother and sister judges of the superior courts to do so No inhibition need deter us from this path The writer is a Karnataka High Court Judge For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express

captain Virat Kohli and head coach Anil Kumble addressed the media in Bangalore and spoke about the upcoming tour of West Indies importance ofemotional connect with coaches and what would be the mindset of the team during the Test season Excerpts (Fixtures | Rankings | Statistics) On4-0 sweep of West Indies and chance to become no1 in Tests Kohli: For us high standard is not that we want to be no1 in Tests I don’t think any team plays for rankings Main goal of every team is to play good cricket This is something we can control Even if you are no1 and don’t play matches other teams can win and make you no2 This is not in our control Our motive is to execute our plans one Test match at a time It’s a long season and we can plan really well Tests is a format which we will play regularly now We have the perfect opportunity to challenge ourselves and assess ourselves These few months will define how we play Test cricket in future READ:India get into order under Anil Kumble’sstewardship On Ashwin’s injury and whether DRS would be used in West Indies Kumble: It’s a bruise We will assess in the next one hour how he responds It should be nothing serious I don’t think there is any DRS for West Indies tour On Shami and what he brings to the table Kohli: Shami is a very skillful guy we all know that He has a lot of ability with the ball the way he bowls and the way the ball is released We have seen in India and in the West Indies series his reverse swing skills Even in Adelaide he picked two-three wickets in last session and got us back in the game So he’s always someone you can bank on He’s someone we always back because he can get us those two-three wickets we need I’m glad to have him back in the team COMING UP – #TeamIndia bonding session full video

intention will always remain to go for the win We have ended up losing games but we know we reached that kind of situation because we played positive cricket We can win and lose and we have lost because of our mistakes We need to realise that we reached such situation by playing good cricket Our focus is to continue with the 80% of playing good cricket and improve our remaining 20% of mistakes without compromising the 80 PHOTOS:Kohli Dhoni attend India’s road-map meeting with Kumble Dravid That mindset is important and Anil bhai’s presence boosts that because his mindset was also like that He has done it numerous times for the team When the team looked least likely to pick a wicket he would come and give the side four-five wickets in a spell If you hesitate thinking about the defeat one can’t test the ability to win Our motive is to explore how good we are Because if you repeat you would know how to win a Test What we need to do as a team to win a Test As a team our mindset is to win the series We don’t want to be satisfied with a one-odd Test win Video: The whites are back @y_umesh @BhuviOfficial and @ImIshant bowling to @mvj888 at the beautiful ground in Alur pictwittercom/CxIAs8GnEz — BCCI (@BCCI) 3 July 2016 On difference between camp under Kumble and others Kohli: I can’t really tell the difference because we haven’t done many training camps before I can tell you the positives and point out things which would benefit the team I feel if you have been in a situation then you can explain it better Explaining skill factor is different it’s mechanical Explaining a mindset is a different skill Mindset will only be created when you have already been in such a situation and only then you can explain what you say This is the biggest advantage with Anil bhai’s inclusion He has won India so many matches more importantly away So his knowledge of skills mental aspect and the technical skills required to win Test matches is the biggest help for us He has been more than willing to speak to everyone – batsmen bowlers and spinners He has spent equal time with everyone It has been very good and we are excited for the road ahead On importance ofemotionalconnect with coaches Kohli: There is emotional connect there is no doubt about that For me it doesn’t matter where the coach is from What matters is how he treats the players and how he makes them feel comfortable and how much he can provide to the players These are the three things you look for when you are assigning a head coach that’s what I personally feel Anil bhai has all three in abundance He understands all the players there is huge respect for him because of what he has done for the country and because of him being the Test captain We have all looked upto him so there’s always that respect and he understands that and makes everyone feel comfortable So I think there the combination has settled beautifully Guys are feeling very comfortable and I said the kind of activity he organised that was the side of Anil bhai that we never explored Emotional connect is very important He’s always involved with the players in some way or the other On upcoming tour Kohli: It’s an important series Every series for us is important We don’t treat any series any game differently I know it sounds very boring but that’s exactly what cricketers think To be successful to be consistent you have to be boring We respect the game more than anything else Home or away priority is to win the series For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media
