Subject. Reply for representation-reg.

I am directed to refer to your letter dated Nil, addressed to Hon’ble Union Minister of Law & Justice regarding representation against transfer of Judges to their Parent High Courts with a request to frame guidelines/ policies for the transfer of High Court Judges like subordinate judicial Officers.

2. In this context, it is informed that administration of Justice is the responsibility of the Judiciary. As per Memorandum of Procedure governing the transfer of High Court Judges, the Article 222 of the Constitution makes provision for the transfer of a Judge (including Chief Justice) from one High Court to any other High Court. The initiation of the proposal for the transfer of a Judge should be made by the Chief Justice of India whose opinion in this regard is determinative. Consent of a Judge for his first or subsequent transfer would not be required. All transfers are to be made in public interest i.e. for promoting better administration of justice throughout the country.

Yours faithfully,

Encl. As Above.
