Judiciary is the most important and third pillar of Democracy. Being a Judge, a person needs to be impartial and honest while giving justice. The Indian Constitution has ensured the independence of the judiciary. The legislature is not at all involved in the process of appointing judges. In order to be appointed as a judge, a person has to be worked as a lawyer.
