The Supreme Court today granted 10 days to the government to apprise it about a possible date for the selection committee's meeting for appointment of Lokpal and its members. The Attorney General, KK Venugopal informed the apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, that the search committee headed by former supreme court judge Ranjana Prakash Desai has completed the deliberations. 

He said the committee has recommended three panels of names to the selection committee for appointment of chairperson, judicial and non-judicial members of Lokpal. 

The AG told the bench, also comprising Justices S A Nazeer and Sanjiv Khanna, that he will ask the Secretary of the Department of Personnel and Training to ensure that the meeting of the Prime Minister-headed selection committee is convened as early as possible.

The court also rejected a plea seeking direction to make public the proposed names in the three panels.
