Report No. 58
Present salary in India not adequate
10.13. In India, until 1950, a Judge of the High Court received Rs. 4,000 as his monthly salary, whereas, when the Constitution came into force in 1950, the said salary was reduced to Rs. 3,500 per month. The amount of Rs. 3,500 per month cannot, in our opinion, be regarded as a reasonable salary for the Judges of the High Court.
