JODHPUR: Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday stressed on the need to have an all-India judicial service, saying it will help in creating a pool of talented judges.

He was speaking at the inauguration of a new building of the Rajasthan High court here.

"The time has come for an all-India judicial service. We have national law schools, and girls and boys are coming out of that."

"The whole idea is to have a proper all-India judicial service examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission under the overall monitoring of the Supreme Court," Prasad said.

He said it was for creating a pool of talented judges at different levels of the judiciary "We need to have greater induction of talent into the judiciary. We need to reflect more on attracting talent into our subordinate judiciary," he said.

Prasad also said the appointment process in the judiciary needs to be fast-tracked.

The event was attended by President Ram Nath Kovind, Chief Justice of India S A Bobde, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and senior judges of the Supreme Court and high court.
