The Tribunal and its benches, having powers of a High Court, will consist of such number of Judicial and administrative members.  A person shall not be qualified for appointment as a Judicial Member unless he is or has been a Judge of a High Court.  A person shall not be qualified for appointment as an Administrative Member unless- (a) he has held or has been holding the rank of Major General or above for a total period of at least three years in the Army or equivalent rank in the Navy or the Air Force; or (b) he has served for not less than one year as Judge Advocate-General in the Army or the Navy or the Air Force, and is not below the rank of Major-General, Commodore and Air Commodore respectively.  A serving person, if appointed shall have to retire from service prior to assuming such appointment.
