Has the contentious memorandum of procedure for appointment of judges to the Supreme Court and High Court which has resulted in a stand-off between the higher judiciary and Modi government been finalized? This question arose as Chief Justice J S Khehar has made it clear that he would not consider any more representation on the Memorandum of Procedure (MoP) which governs the process of selecting and appointing judges in the higher judiciary.

“Thousands of people have given their suggestions and representations and more keeps coming. For now, we are not going to look at them,” Chief Justice J S Khehar heading a bench which also comprises of D Y Chandrachud and Sanjay Kishan Kaul said.

The observations came when Ashwini Kumar Updhyay, lawyer and Delhi BJP spokesperson, mentioned before the bench that he has made a representation to the CJI and others on the MoP and judicial reforms which should be considered.

“It is being said that the MoP is being finalised. Kindly consider the representation,” the lawyer said.

“Not now. If the need arises, we will look into in future,” the bench said.
