No consensus yet on setting up of all India judicial service Law Ministry

While reacting to the query raised by Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Shukla on the government's plan to set up All India Judicial Service, the Law Ministry has responded that at present, there is no consensus among the stakeholders on the proposal.

In a written reply, Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal said there was divergence of opinion among the state governments and the 25 high courts on the constitution of this judicial service.

What is All India Judicial Service (AIJS)?

AIJS is a proposed centralized recruitment system for judges at the level of additional district judges and district judges across all states.

It aims to centralize the recruitment of judges, similar to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) model, assigning successful candidates to states.

Originating from Law Commission reports in 1958 and 1978, AIJS seeks to address structural issues like varying pay, faster vacancy filling, and standardized nationwide training.

Notably, Article 312 of the Constitution provides for the establishment of AIJS, similar to central civil services, upon a resolution by the Rajya Sabha supported by at least two-thirds of its members.

However, Article 312 (2) states that the AIJS cannot include any post inferior to that of a district judge, as defined in Article 236.
