Rejecting the Law Commission’s recommendation for setting up of regional Supreme Court Benches, Chief Justice of India K.G. Balakrishnan on Saturday said he did not favour the “disintegration” of the Supreme Court.
“I am not in favour of the disintegration of the Supreme Court. Personally I feel the Supreme Court cannot be in any other part of India. This is the highest court of the land. It is in the capital city of the land,” he said.
The CJI said, “It is a final court and we should maintain the integrity of the Supreme Court.”
