The Ministry of Law and Justice on Wednesday appointed four new judges to the Supreme Court, taking the total number of judges to the sanctioned strength of 34. They are;

  1. Justice Krishna Murari
  2. Justice S R Bhat
  3. Justice V Ramasubramanian
  4. Justice Hrishikesh Roy

The appointments were made a month after the Lok Sabha (LS) on August 07, 2019 passed a bill increasing the judicial strength from 31 to 34, including the Chief Justice of India.

 

It may be underlined that the strength of the top court had last been increased from 25 to 30 through an amendment in 2009.
