WP 4653 of 2013
Writ against the illegal and arbitrary appointment of the new CAG of India and to seek directions for future appointments

Summary :

Common Cause sought directions from the Court to declare the appointment of Shri Shashi Kant Sharma as India’s new Comptroller & Auditor General of India (CAG) as void. It was claimed that the appointment as CAG was liable to be declared void as it was made arbitrarily by a procedure that did not withstand the test of constitutionality, also on the ground of conflict of interest, and the principle, i.e. no person shall be a judge in his own cause.

The petition was dismissed by the Court on August 13, 2014.
