Uniform tenure, salary for tribunal members, chiefs
The government Thursday gave its approval to a proposal to bring uniformity in the tenure, allowances and retirement age of chairpersons and members of various tribunals in the country.
As of now, some tribunals have a three-year tenure for retired judges while, for others, it may run to five years.
The approval to bring in uniformity was given by the union cabinet at a meeting held here, an official release said.
The proposal envisages a uniform tenure of a maximum of five years for chairpersons and members of tribunals. But they will have varied retirement ages of 70 years for a Supreme Court judge and 67 years for a high court judge.
A retirement age of 65 has been proposed for members who join tribunals from the administrative side, according to the proposal cleared by the cabinet.
An "overarching" legislation will be introduced in parliament based on the proposal.
