Draft SOP and Judicial Review UPSC NOTE


Potential implications of the draft SOP on the power of judicial review.

  • The union government has proposed to the Supreme Court a draft standard operating procedure (SOP).

  • The Centre said it had drafted the protocol for the Supreme Court’s consideration to create a more “congenial and conducive” environment between the judiciary and government.

  • Chief Justice of India said some parts of a draft SOP prepared by the Centre to tailor judicial conduct in government-related cases read as if the Centre wanted to dictate the exercise of judicial review.

  • Solicitor-General flatly denied any intention on the government’s part to modify the courts’ power of judicial review through the draft SOP.

  • He said the draft focused on how senior government officials, including the Chief Secretaries, were being summoned by courts for the slightest reason.

  • The Chief Justice also found several important points worth consideration in the draft SOP, including a proposed bar on courts from summoning officials when the case was still pending in appeal.

  • The Chief Justice made it clear that the Supreme Court would restrict its order only to the aspect of issue of summons to government officials, and nothing else.
