SC collegium recommends six names for Madras High Court

The Supreme Court collegium headed by the Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra has recommended six names for appointment as judges of the Madras High Court and three names to the Kerala High Court even as the judicial vacancies in the 24 high courts across the country have not seen any significant changes.

The collegium has recommended six district judges for elevation to the Madras High Court. The six names were part of a total of 10 names of district judges sent in two batches to the collegium for elevation. The 10 names that were forwarded to the collegium were: S. Ramathilagam, S. Tharani, P. Rajamanickam, N.V. Vasudevan, B. Sarojini Devi, T. Krishnavalli, A. Jahir Hussain, R. Pongiappan, R. Hemalatha and K. Arul.

The recommendations will now be processed by the Ministry of Law and Justice and the files are expected to be cleared for appointment in the next few weeks.

The six names cleared by the collegium are part of the first group of names recommended by the Madras High Court collegium early this year. A second list of names forwarded by the collegium has four district judges, while a third list contains 11 lawyers. These names will be considered in the next Supreme Court collegium meeting.
