Plea in Supreme Court wants retirement age of subordinate judges in Madhya Pradesh to be raised to 62, like State Government employees

The Supreme court of India issued a notice against a petition about increase in age of superannuation of members of the subordinate judiciary in Madhya Pradesh to 62 years. 

Three bench judge comprising of Justice S.A. Bobde, Justice A.S. Bopanna and Justice V. Ramasubhramaniun issued the directions while hearing the plea. This particular appeal was filed by Madhya Pradesh Judges’ Association seeking permission to increase the age of superannuation of members of the subordinate judiciary. Previously Supreme Court had issued an order that the age cannot be increased to 62years but this petition was filed making modifications to it. The above mentioned petition has shown the increase the age of superannuation for the state government employees as an example. Petition claims that an amendment should be made to 2 Rules, Rule 16 of the Madhya Pradesh Higher Judicial Service Rules, 2017 and Rule 14 of the Madhya Pradesh Judicial Service (Recruitment and Conditions of Service) Rules, 1994.

The petitioner says that the rule should be same for State Government employees and the Judges otherwise that would lead to discrimination and violation of Article 14 of the Constitution of India. If the State Government employees work till the age of 62, it should be equal with the Judges and they should also be granted permission to work till the age of 62.
