The judges Inquiry Bill 2006 : Report of the Parliamentary Standing committee-2007

The in-house procedure is essentially meant for disciplining the Judges, against whom complaints of judicial misconduct and misbehaviour were received. The in-house procedure rests on the premise that there may be complaints casting reflection on the independence and integrity of a Judge which is bound to have a prejudicial effect on the image of the higher judiciary. In the in-house procedure, a complaint against a judge is dealt with at an appropriate level within the institution. It is examined by his peers and no outside agency is involved, thus the independence of judiciary is maintained.
