Whispers Forum

Is judiciary a ‘superior executive’?

Sir Alladi Krishnaswamy Iyer said: “The doctrine of independence is not to be raised to the level of a dogma so as to enable the judiciary to function as a kind of super-legislature or super-executive”. The judge is addressed as “Learned/Ld Justice…”. The language of the judiciary under Art 348 is “English”. English was in use for all purposes before 1947 stated in Art 343. Calling the decision of the Executive “hanky-panky” shows disrespect to the Prime Minister and the President who have taken/approved the decision. Judges are not above these two constitutional authorities. In the Warrant of Precedent they follow, not lead, the President/Prime Minister. This is not English u/Art 348 but Inglish, derogatorily called Hinglish/Tinglish/Binglish etc. Much of the pending cases in the courts are due to freedom taken with the English language, especially the text of judicial pronouncements, which are expected to be the best compositions from the learned to inspire students of law but make no sense many a time. Can justice be expected from judges smelling hanky-panky? Will the judiciary be cautious hereafter?

Ignorance of the provisions of the RTI Act

The appellant sought copies of the appointment letters issued to the dependents of the deceased employees for appointment on compassionate grounds during a particular period. During the hearing, the appellant’s representative submitted that the father of the appellant was an employee and hence, information should be given. The CIC observed that the information sought is related to third parties and rightly rejected by the respondent. However, the exemption clause was not correctly quoted. The personal information of third parties are exempt u/s 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. The CIC further observed that the FAA failed to dispose of the first appeal on time which is a sorry state of affairs. The CPIO and the FAA were both cautioned to be careful regarding the provisions of the RTI Act.


This is a case where the CIC held that this is a third party information which is duly exempt under the RTI Act. However, both the CPIO and the FAA were at the receiving end due to ignorance of the provisions of the RTI. The CPIO did not quote the correct exemption clause while the FAA did not follow the timeline. All officers must learn the basics of the RTI Act to save themselves from such humiliation.
