Vote For Note Case | The Supreme Court overturned the 1998 decision in the Vote for Note case, now MPs, MLAs are not exempt leader









Leaders Online: The Supreme Court has given a major decision in the Vote for Note case. A seven-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court on Monday unanimously overturned the 1998 decision; which exempted MPs-MLAs from prosecution for accepting bribes for voting in Parliament. Due to this, if MLAs-MPs take money for speaking or voting in the House, a case can be registered against them. That means now they will not get legal exemption in this case.

A seven-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court has held that MPs cannot claim immunity from prosecution on charges of bribery in connection with voting or speeches in Parliament/Assembly.
