The Supreme Court on Wednesday sought details from the Centre about the ratification process of the 99th Constitution Amendment incorporating the National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) law by State Assemblies.

Responding to this, Solicitor-General Ranjit Kumar informed a Constitution Bench led by Justice J.S. Khehar that out of 20 State Assemblies debates from 17 States have been received.

“Quite extensive debates took place in Assemblies. Some of them are in vernacular languages, we are in the process of getting them translated. We will place them on record,” Mr. Kumar said.
