Supreme Court Collegium Recommends Chief Justices for Seven High Courts

The Supreme Court Collegium has proposed appointments for Chief Justices in seven High Courts across India, addressing existing and anticipated vacancies[.

Justice Manmohan is recommended to lead the Delhi High Court, where he currently serves as Acting Chief Justice. His appointment aligns with the Memorandum of Procedure, allowing him to become Chief Justice in his parent High Court.

For Himachal Pradesh, Justice Rajiv Shakdher is nominated, following the transfer of the current Chief Justice. Justice Shakdher’s seniority and experience make him a suitable candidate for this position.

Justice Suresh Kumar Kait, a senior judge from Delhi High Court belonging to the Scheduled Caste category, is proposed for the Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh High Court.

The Collegium recommends Justice G.S. Sandhawalia, the senior-most judge from Punjab and Haryana High Court, to head the Madhya Pradesh High Court, recognizing the importance of representation from one of India’s largest High Courts.

For Kerala, Justice Nitin Madhukar Jamdar from Bombay High Court is nominated, while Justice K.R. Shriram, also from Bombay, is recommended for the Madras High Court.

Notably, Justice Tashi Rabstan is proposed for the Meghalaya High Court, potentially becoming the first Chief Justice from the Ladakh region.

These recommendations aim to balance seniority, performance, and representation across different High Courts in India’s judicial system.
