New Delhi: The central government on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that there was no logjam in clearing name for appointment of judges to the high courts and it was on the job.
Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the bench of Chief Justice T.S Thakur and Justice A.M Khanwilkar that the delay was happening because the process for filing the vacancies which had arisen seven years back started late.
Telling the court that the process for filing the vacancies should start six months before a vacancy actually arises, he said: “It is like a race, you start early. You reach in time.”
