Retired Chief Justice of India (CJI) Uday Umesh (UU) Lalit today told NDTV that he is not averse to accepting government appointments after retirement, but will himself accept the proposal to become a Rajya Sabha member or governor of a state. will not do. Uday Umesh Lalit said, it is not that I see these posts as demotion but it is not appropriate for the person retiring from the post of Chief Justice. Becoming a member of Rajya Sabha or a Governor is not a right idea for a retired Chief Justice.
Uday Umesh Lalit gave this answer to a question on whether judges like former CJI Ranjan Gogoi accepted government postings after retirement. Uday Umesh Lalit said, “This is my personal view. I am not suggesting that they are wrong.” Justice Lalit, while mentioning the head of the National Human Rights Commission, the Lokpal and the head of the Law Commission, as jobs, said he would have no objection if asked about it.
Uday Umesh Lalit further clarified his point and said, “Rajya Sabha is a completely different thing. What I mean to say is that posts like the Chairman of the NHRC… are by law a Supreme Court Judge, former Chief. Judges have the right to take appointments. These have been passed by Parliament and Parliament has determined that Supreme Court judges, former Chief Justices, etc. can hold these positions. We go by the discretion of Parliament.” The former Chief Justice said that he would like to teach law in educational institutions. “Maybe work at the National Judicial Academy or at some law schools as a visiting professor.”
