SC for minimum qualification marks to become a judge

sc

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to entertain a petition challenging 45 per cent as the qualification marks for Scheduled Caste (SC) candidates in the Haryana Judicial Service Examination.

The apex court was of the view that there should be minimum qualification marks for being a judge.

“For selecting a judge, there has to be a minimum qualification. There has to be a benchmark, just because one is a Scheduled Caste, the same cannot be done away with,” a Bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud observed.

It did not accept the submission of an NGO, Volunteers for Social Justice, seeking a lower qualification benchmark for SC candidates.

The NGO had challenged the Punjab and Haryana High Court decision to keep 45 per cent as the qualification marks for SC candidates which was also for Backward Caste candidates. The High Court had dismissed the plea of the NGO.
