Ministry of Law and Justice
Correct Answer
C

Chief Justice of India with the approval of President
Your Answer
D

Rajya Sabha with a motion passed by special majority

Solution

The correct option is D
Chief Justice of India with the approval of President

Explanation:

Delhi is the seat of the Supreme Court as declared by the Constitution of India. At the same time, it also authorises the Chief justice of India to appoint other place or places as seat(s) of the Supreme Court. He can take decision in this regard only with the approval of the President. This provision is only optional and not compulsory. So, no court can give any direction either to the President or to the Chief Justice to appoint any other place as a seat of the Supreme Court.
