Judging the Judges through Performance Evaluation

The complaints against the judges must be closely and carefully scrutinized by an impartial body of judges using a transparent but completely independent procedure. Apart from that a monitoring system to regularly evaluate the performance of judges must also be in place. Although there is an internal system of appraisal for the judges of the lower judiciary, but a similar mechanism at the level of higher judiciary must also be there though it may not be a very good idea for such a system to exist at the level of the Supreme Court because the apex judicial body of the nation must remain free of all evaluations and also of all possibilities of coming under undue influence directly or indirectly.
