On Tuesday (August 31, 2021), nine new judges, including three women, were administered the oath of office at the Supreme Court. The Chief Justice of India, N.V. Ramana, read out the oath of allegiance of the constitution to the new judges, thereby raising the strength of the Apex Court’s staff to 33.

The occasion is historical since it is the first time that as many as nine judges have been sworn into the Supreme Court in one go.  Similarly, it is also the first time that the Apex Court allowed a live telecast of the ceremony, which was held in an auditorium at the court’s new annex complex.

In addition to the above, Justice C T Ravikumar, Justice M M Sundresh, Justice Bela M Trivedi, and senior advocate and former additional solicitor General P S Narsimha have also been administered oath by the CJI.
