How are the judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts appointed and how can a judge
- The judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts are appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister and in consultation with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
The seniormost judge of the Supreme Court is usually appointed by the Chief Justice.
- Once a person is appointed as ‘judge’ of the Supreme Court or the High Court, it is nearly impossible to remove him or her from that position. It is as difficult as removing the President of India.
- A judge can be removed only by an impeachment motion passed separately by two-third members of the two Houses of the Parliament.
