Dear friend,

Actually, the judge of supreme court are appointed by the President of India with consultation of both Supreme Court and appointments which is generally made on the basis of seniority. Political influence in this case are avoided. The selection of the judges will be based on the five years experience as judge in any high court or 10 years experience as a advocate in any high court of the states. In article 124(2)shows that president will mostly consult the chief justice or the council of ministers for the appointment of the judges. The judges of the supreme court can continue in the office upto the age of 65 years.
