NEW DELHI, Jan 25: The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to the law ministry on appointment of the chairman of the Law Commission on the post lying vacant since retirement of Justice (retd) B S Chauhan in August 2018.
It acted on a PIL by BJP leader advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, pointing out vacancy of many other members of the commission. The petition sought appointment of the chairman and members of the commission within a month and declare it as a statutory body to save it from becoming non-functional.
A three-judge bench of the Apex Court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde, issued the notice to the Law Ministry and others and posted the next hearing on March 12. The two other judges on the Bench were Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.
