Just like posts of CAG and Election Commissioner, High Court and Supreme Court Judges also must be barred from taking 'POSTS' after retirement, in order to make Judiciary independent of Executive, the Government of India at New Delhi.
Comptroller and Auditor General Mr. Vinod Rai must be hailed for his frank anguish over state of affairs with regard to bullying by Political class.
You know why and how could CAG took courage and become bold enough to criticize the Government and the Establishment.
I think that one and only foremost reason for this is that CAG, like Election Commissioner is barred from taking up any Government post after retirement.
If High Court and Supreme Court Judges are also barred from 'POSTS' after retirement, Judgments from High and Supreme Courts would be more objective and of course more censures against the Governmnt.

CJI is candid enough to accept the truth that Government ( Executive ) and Judiciary are coordinating in serving each other. Apparently at the cost of Checks and Balances.
Chief Justice says that 'final budgetary allocation is the prerogative of the executive. However, once the allocation is made, we all believe that the time has come to seriously engage on the issues of financial autonomy for the judiciary.' Then how can Judiciary attain Autonomy? Government lacks sincerity to reform Judiciary and make it independent. On the one hand Government says that practice of appointment of retired judges as heads of Commissions etc would be dispensed with. But the "benefits" to the judges continue in the form of rise of retirement age by another 3 years ? What is this ? Government and Judiciary take people for a run and Justice eludes common man. Because there would be no check against Governments' arbitrary actions even after reforms are effected.
The above two letters were written by me in Times of India in response to news item, Judiciary, legislature need to coordinate: CJI dt. 5th Aprl, 2015, Times of India. Viewing judiciary and legislature as "siblings", Chief Justice of India H L Dattu on Sunday pressed for coordination as well as correcting each other in case the path laid down by the Constitution is deviated from.
