THE much-anticipated meeting of the Supreme Court judges to discuss the contentious issue of declaration of assets of judges is still to be held. However,sources say the possibility of the meeting taking place is bleak. The Chief Justice of India has told his brother judges that the stand taken by the apex court on the issue doesn’t require any reconsideration. The Supreme Court’s challenge to the Central Information Commission’s order on declaration of assets is coming up for hearing at the Delhi High Court on February 27. Indications are that the Supreme Court will stick to its earlier stand,which is that there is no law that makes it mandatory for the judges to make their assets public.
