New Delhi: The Supreme Court will restart hearing aruguments on the constitutional validity of the National Judicial Appointment Commission (NJAC) Act on Monday.

The Centre had pleaded that the appeals against the NJAC be referred to either nine or 11-judge-bench. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi had also suggested that the matter can be heard after conclusion of the summer vacation. However, the five-judge Constitution bench headed by Justice JS Khehar rejected both the plea and the suggestion on May


The bench, which also includes justices J Chelameswar, MB Lokur, Kurian Joseph and Adarsh Kumar Goel, said, "This country or court may not have a matter of this importance. This is the enactment of the law by Parliament which has a majoritarian rule. This is a serious matter.”

The court had directed that as an interim measure, additional high court judges, whose stint is scheduled to end soon, will continue in office for three more months.
