New Delhi | Feb 20, 2020 (IANS):
The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that the members of the subordinate judicial services cannot be considered eligible for appointment as district judges through the way of direct recruitment.
In its verdict, a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said: "In the cases where such in service incumbents have been appointed by way of direct recruitment from bar, we find no merit in the petitions and due to dismissal of the writ petitions filed by the judicial officers. As sequel, no fruits can be ripened on the basis of selection without eligibility, they cannot continue as District Judges."
