Why NJAC Was Declared To Be Null And Void?

After the three-judge case when the collegium system was introduced there were many allegations made that there was existence of nepotism in the judiciary so due many controversies such as first there was executive inference which was creating a problem & after that there was nepotism in the judiciary which was again creating problems in the country so by seeing such type of controversies state came up with a new way which was named as NJAC.

It was introduced in the 99th amendment of the constitution 2014 & was enforced in 13th April,2015. by this amendment article 124 A was made which stated that the president will appoint judges of supreme court in consultation with the NJAC.

Earlier the appointment of judges of supreme court was made by the president in consultation with the chief justice of India but after the three judge case it was decided that the president with appoint judges of supreme court in consultation with the collegium system which constituted of five member, there were five member because if any of the judge disagree with a name then in that case the collegium may not propose such name.

But now it was decided that the consultation will be done by the NJAC committee which consisted of CJI , two supreme court judges, one union minister of law & justice & two Eminent persons who will be appointed by the prime minister, CJI & leader of the opposition in Lok Sabha but it can be seen that there is too much interference in NJAC in relation to the first judge case which actually violates article 50 of the Indian constitution which talks about the separation of judiciary from the executive.

In the judgement of Keshvananda Bharati Case article 50 was made a part of basic structure doctrine & if anything is kept under the basic structure doctrine then parliament cannot use article 368 which talks about the amending power of the parliament as here it is seen that the parliament has amended article 124 of the Indian constitution  by the 99th amendment act by using such power mentioned in article 368 of the Indian constitution  & brought NJAC which actually violates article 50 of the constitution because of too much interference also if this will be allowed the again their will be more interference of executive in relation to the first judge case & even the judiciary will come under the pressure of the state so as NJAC is violating article 50 & therefore violating the basic structure doctrine  it was abolished & hence collegium system was restored.
