Old Age cripples countless officials but not judges nor politicians nor VVIPs,senior citizens comment.The trend developed in India is that post retirement benefit is being given to most of the judges by holding different pivotal posts and if not possible, one may be accommodated in any commission assignment .Invariably is it seen that most of the Acts are coined by providing accommodation to the retired judges in the Act itself .Many general public comment, if the attitude of the govt remains focused on the personality of judges for any reason ,why such retirement!! They may be allowed till they wish to retire .
