A Big Thumbs Up for Acknowledging Mental Illness, Bipolar Affective Disorder (BPAD)

Caught in a catch-22 situation where acknowledgement of BPAD was making a candidate ‘eligible’ for the post of judicial officer but, at the same time, making him ‘not suitable’ for carrying out the judicial work in the opinion of the recruiting authority, the selected BPAD candidate knocked the door of Hon’ble SC. Hon’ble SC upheld the appointment & decided in favour of the candidate who will join as a judge in the Delhi Judicial Service.
