Mumbai:To prevent frivolous complaints against judges, the Bombay High Court has made it mandatory that a complaint on an affidavit must be submitted along with “verifiable material” substantiating the allegation.

“A complaint making allegations against members of the district judiciary will not be entertained and no action will be taken thereon unless it is accompanied by a duly sworn affidavit and verifiable material to substantiate the allegations,” a notice issued by the high court said.
 
“The notice has been issued following directives of the Supreme Court,” high court's registrar general Mangesh Patil said, adding that it will also apply to complaints against the high court judges.

The notice, however, did not specify whether action would be taken against the complainant who has filed an affidavit if, upon inquiry, the allegation is found to be false.
