Collegium members ranked 2 to 5 delivered 33.9% of the judgments in major cases (benches of 3 or more) during CJI Dipak Misra’s current term. This figure is even lower at 29.3% — the second lowest among all 17 CJIs since January 1999 – between the period he took charge and January 12, 2018, the day other collegium members complained about the manner important cases were allocated.
