What was National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC)?
The National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) was a proposed body in India that would have been responsible for appointing judges to the higher courts in the country. The NJAC was intended to replace the current system, under which judges are appointed by the President of India on the advice of the collegium of senior judges. The NJAC was created by an act of the Indian parliament, but it was later struck down by the Supreme Court of India. The current system of judicial appointments remains in place.
