HP High Court Judges to Declare Assets

Emulating the precedent set by Supreme Court justices, judges of the Himachal Pradesh High Court have unanimously decided to make their assets public, say media reports citing a court official on Sunday.

“A decision to declare assets has been taken unanimously by all the nine judges, including acting Chief Justice RB Mishra,” VK Sharma, registrar general of the high court, was quoted as saying.

He said the list of the assets to be declared by the judges would be put up on the High Court website for scrutiny at the earliest.

“We are awaiting the guidelines that have been finalised by the apex court in this regard. As soon as we get these, the list (of assets of the judges) would be put on the high court website,” he said.

Justices of the Supreme Court, at a meeting presided by Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan, on Wednesday decided to make public the details of their assets.
