Never let idea of India be mutilated: Retired Justice Akil Kureshi receives SGS Award for Ethics in Legal Profession

Further, Justice Kureshi addressed areas in the judiciary that demand improvement. Specifically, he referred to the Collegium system and why revealing reasons for rejecting a candidate’s elevation might not augur well for such a candidate.

“But I have always been against this. Imagine, how a lawyer will feel continuing his practice after these reasons about him are made public,” he remarked.

The former judge opined that a group of three or five judges is not enough to grasp all aspects of the Collegium system and that needs to be corrected. In that regard, he suggested creation of a mechanism that invites former judges, social workers and people with a background in electoral politics to have debates to bring out a perfect system.
