Supreme Court judges to declare wealth on web site

Supreme court judges have finally relented since their own ranks had broken down when few high court judges voluntarily declared assets:

This is actually a victory of good sense over childlike stubbornness of a few judges, who are so afraid of being thrown behind bars due to false cases once their assets are public knowledge.

Kudos again to Justice D V Shylendra Kumar of Karnataka HC for bringing the whole supreme court judiciary to see the light of future and not be stuck in the past.

Finally, why is declaration of assets important? Do people not trust the judiciary anymore? I am afraid there were doubts in public after scams like 15 lakh cash at doorstep of HC judge etc. This is a first step to restore confidence of public in high judiciary.
