New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday pulled up the Centre for the delay in appointment of judges and warned it will summon officials of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) to explain if the process is not fast-tracked.

The AG submitted that there was no deadlock between the government and the SC over appointment of judges. The processing of names will be faster if a new Memorandum of Procedure (MoP) – which lays down the procedural system to aid the functioning of the collegium – is finalized.
