Delhi high court judges declare assets

But no information on assets held by spouses, vehicles

PTI | February 6, 2010

All the 42 judges of the Delhi high court, including the Chief Justice A P Shah, placed the details of their assets on the high court's website on Friday. The high court has thus become the third to make assets of its judges public after Kerala and Madras.

Several judges, however, have failed to reveal details of the assets held in the name of their spouses.

They have disclosed details of the assets held in their personal capacity but refrained from disclosing whether the wives/husbands too owned any assets or not.
None of the judges disclosed anything about the vehicles owned by them.

These declaration is in sharp contrast to the assets declared by the Supreme Court judges who detailed the assest owned by their spouses in the their disclosures and even accounted for motorcycles they own.

The  Delhi high court judges have one thing in common -- all of them have preferred investments in shares, mutual funds and bonds.

Among the immoveable properties, it appears that majority of them have invested in real estate properties in NCR region.
