SC Collegium next week: Allahabad HC may have a chance!

As part of the collegium, she will have her say in all appointments to the top courts, which has only had eight woman judges since Independence.

With four new judges SC gains strength (28/31)

By IndianMandarins 02 Nov 2018

With the appointment of four new judges for Supreme Court, within 48 hours of Collegium recommendation, the working strength of the SC has risen to 28 against the sanctioned strength of 31.

 

CJI Justice Ranjan Gogoi, had on Tuesday, recommended the names of Justices Hemant Gupta (CJ, MP High Court), Ajay Rastogi (CJ, Tripura HC), M R Shah (CJ, Patna HC) and R Subhash Reddy (CJ, Gujarat HC) for their elevation as SC Judges.  The Law Ministry, on Thursday night, notified these appointments.

 

The development is also being seen as a break from the past differences between the SC & the Govt. It may be recalled that the Centre had once sat on Justice K M Joseph’s file for months despite SC Collegium's recommendation for his elevation.

 

This year, two SC judges -- Justices Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph -- are set to retire top court, while Justice AK Sikri would demit office in March 2019.
