Supreme Court DecisionsSupreme Court On Policy Of Appointment of Law Officer

April 1, 20160

Supreme Court has expressed concern over appointment of Public Prosecutors (PP) without any real assessment or policy as it framed guidelines for selection and appointment of law officers in states. It observed that the  prevailing process lacked transparency.

The bench, headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur ,observed the folowing :

“No lawyer has a right to be appointed as State Government counsel or as public prosecutor at any level, nor does he have a vested right to claim extension in the term for which he/she is initially appointed.



“We have also held that all candidates who are eligible for any such appointment can offer themselves for re-appointment or extension, in which event their claims can and ought to be considered on their merit uninfluenced by any political or other extraneous consideration,”
