Arguments are being made that the four senior-most judges of Supreme Court after Chief Justice of India should not have bypassed conduct code by holding an unprecedented press conference. Instead they should have written to the president of India. But such a course of action would not have helped in the present era of opaqueness in administrative side of Indian judicial system. India needs transparency in administrative side. Rules should be formed for formation of benches and case allocations. Perhaps, India should think of having a Permanent National Judicial Commission to appoint higher judiciary and also probe complaints against judges and prescribe punishment to the ones found guilty.
