GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Aug 24: While the uncertainty prevailed over promotion of around 15 Sub-Judges, the State High Court today transferred at least eleven district judges.
Official sources in the state high court told Greater Kashmir that the law department is yet to respond to the clarification sought regarding the sanction accorded by it for adhoc promotion of 15 Sub Judges as District Judges in their own pay and grade.
The High Court, sources claimed, has desired that the law department should relax some of the conditions mentioned in the sanction order including the one that once direct recruitment is made the adhoc appointees can revert back to their original positions.
As the law department has not responded to the clarification sought, uncertainty even prevailed over the promotion of around a dozen Munsiffls as Sub Judges.
“The entire thing is now dependent on the law department, which seems to be reluctant over the issue”, sources, on the condition of anonymity said adding, “The HC is also unlikely to issue promotion orders under the conditions mentioned in the sanctioned order”.
The indecision over the issue has severally affected the working of sub-ordinate courts across the state, especially where the presiding officers knows that he is under transfer.
Meanwhile, HC today transferred around a dozen district judges. As per the order, Jang Bahadur Singh Jamwal, Registrar Judicial J&K High Court Jammu Wing, has been transferred and posted as Principal District and Sessions Judge Jammu in place of AK Shan, who has been posted on deputation as One Man Forest Authority.
