M.C.CHAGLA AS THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF BOMBAY HIGH COURT - Chapter 7 is the experiences of M. C. Chagla during his 11 years of tenure as the Chief Justice of Bombay High Court. At the initial stage, he had a rival, Morarji Desai, who was the Home Minister till 1952 and then the Chief Minister. M C. Chagla affirm his views and principles of justice in this Chapter, with special emphasis to the appointment of Judges.
With regard to appointment of Lad, who was the legal Remembrancer, was the first confrontation of M.C.Chagla with Morarji Desai against his suggestion of a junior District Judge. Chagla was on the adomant stand that an executive should not take over the office of a Judge straight away. Instead, he should continue as District Judge and must have some experience, then only be considered to the position of a Judge. - Marthanda Varma
