of matters to judges. CJI has decided to keep the Public Interest
Litigation cases against himself. The order was made public on the
official website of the apex court yesterday. The 13-page
notification said a roster of the work for fresh cases notified under
the order of the CJI will come into effect from the 5th of this month
till further orders.

four senior-most judges in their 12th January press conference had
questioned the allocation of sensitive PILs and important cases to
judges junior in seniority order.
