GK Question- 40

The salary and allowances of Chief Justice of India and Other judges can be reduced only if approval comes from:
[A]President
[B]Parliament
[C]Supreme Court
[D]None of them


Explanation: The salary of Supreme Court judges is charged on Consolidated Fund of India and it is a nonvotable charge. The salary can be reduced only if there is a state of financial emergency in the country. Some of you may ask, that the Financial emergency is declared by president then why option A is not correct. The reason is that President can declare a financial emergency under article 360 BUT it must be approved by parliament within 2 months.
