Parliament vs Judiciary

  • The Constitution(127th Amendment) Bill seeks to amend the Constitution to restore to States the power to identify and specify Socially and Economically Backward Classes (SEBCs).
  • It is done by neutralizing the effect of the Constitution Bench judgment of the Supreme Court in the quota case.
  • In that case, the Supreme Court, by 3:2 majority, had interpreted the 102nd Constitutional Amendment as taking away the power of States to specify SEBCs.
  • The Tribunal Reforms Bill 2021 nullifies the effect of the recent judgment of the Supreme Court in the Madras Bar Association case which had struck down certain provisions relating to the term, selection process, and minimum age qualification of members of Tribunals.
  • The Bill, in effect, re-enacts the provisions invalidated by the Supreme Court.
