Court packing as a good thing

A bumper crop of new judges have been appointed to India's Armed Forces Tribunal. The Chandigarh Tribune has the story here. Excerpt:
The Central Government has appointed seven new members to the Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT), giving a partial fillip to the large number of posts of members lying vacant in the Tribunal, owing to which some benches had become non-functional.

The move comes when new rules notified by the Central Government for the appointment of AFT members were under challenge before the Punjab and Haryana High Court as they violated certain provisions contained in the AFT Act and also prejudiced the independence of the tribunals.

  1. The new ones are probably no different.
