The Supreme Court of India is going to hear a batch of pleas challenging the newly-amended Finance Act, which changed the search and selection and removal process of members and presiding officers of tribunals including the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT). 

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra posted the matter for hearing on November 23 after Attorney General K K Venugopal sought some time for arguing the matter.

The bench will be hearing various petitions, including the one filed by CAT, questioning the constitutional validity of provisions of the Finance Act.

The recently amended Finance Act led to the framing of the 2017 Rules which allegedly gave "unbridled" powers to the Executive to decide on the qualification of the members, their appointment and removal among other issues, one of the petitions filed by Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said.
