NLSIU grad, Dua Partner among Collegium recommendations for elevation to Madras HC

The Supreme Court collegium's recommendation comes almost a year after the proposal with names of 10 advocates sent by the then Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee on January 13, 2017, in consultation with his two seniormost colleagues as there were complaints against some advocates proposed for elevation.

The apex court body said the high court collegium had taken into account merit, experience, performance, character and conduct of the recommended persons and dealt with adequate representation. The Governor, without specifying names, has conveyed that some of the candidates do not meet "requirement of efficiency in their performance". Meanwhile, former judge of High Court A N Venugopala Gowda and two advocates moved the Karnataka High Court seeking directions for early appointment of judges.

Should the elevation of these nine names go through, the Madras High Court will have a total of 69 judges, just 6 shy of its sanctioned strength of 75.

The last appointment to the Karnataka HC was on January 2,2015 when five members of the bar were elevated as additional judges of the HC. However, the collegium said that the governor had not specified the names of these people and the basis for forming such an opinion. "As per comments of the Intelligence Bureau on one of these complaints, the allegations are not established or are incorrect, (and) the said complaints deserve to be ignored", the SC collegium comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices J Chelameswar and Ranjan Gogoi said in the resolution dated December 4.

With regard to Calcutta High Court, the apex court collegium accepted the recommendation of the Chief Justice and gave its nod for elevation of five lawyers as judges. The lawyers cleared for elevation are Shampa Sarkar, Sabyasachi Chaudhury, Ravi Krishan Kapur, Arindam Mukherjee and Sakya Sen.

The December 4 meeting also saw the Supreme Court Collegium recommend for permanent judgeships, the names of additional judges in Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand High Courts.

The names once cleared by the collegium are sent to the Centre for approval after which a formal warrant of appointment is issued by the President. The Collegium notes in its resolution that it had received certain adverse but unconfirmed inputs against Pugalendhi, and therefore, kept his elevation on hold. Additional Judge G Narendar was appointed as permanent judge of the Karnataka High Court.Presently, there are 392 vacancies for judges in different HCs.
