High Courts of Andhra Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, amongst others to get new Chief Justices

The President of India while exercising powers conferred by clause (1) of Article 217 [Appointment & Conditions of the Office of a Judge of a High Court] of the Constitution of India on October 3 has appointed several High Court judges to be Chief Justices of different High Courts across the nation.


The High Court Judges who have been appointed as Chief Justices by the Hon’ble President are as follows:


1. Justice J.K. Maheshwari of MP High Court as Chief Justice of Andhra Pradesh High Court.

2. Justice Ajai Lamba of Allahabad HC as Chief Justice of Guwahati High Court.

3. Justice S. Manikumar of Madras High Court as Chief Justice of Kerala High Court.

4. Justice L. Narayana Swami of Karnataka HC as Chief Justice of Himachal Pradesh HC.

5. Justice Indrajit Mohanty of Bombay High Court as Chief Justice of Rajasthan High Court.

6. Justice Arup Kumar Goswami of Guwahati HC as Chief Justice of Sikkim High Court.

7. Justice Ravi Shankar Jha of MP High Court (Acting CJ) as Chief Justice of Punjab & Haryana HC.



 

   Justice Ravi Shankar Jha


Out of the above, Justice J.K. Maheshwari will be the first Chief Justice of the Andhra Pradesh High Court as the Chief Justice seat has been lying vacant since the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states.


The above recommendations were given by the Supreme Court Collegium on August 22 and 28 this year and the appointments have been confirmed by the President after former Chief Justice of High Courts of Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana, Kerala and Himachal Pradesh were elevated to the Supreme Court, thereby taking its judicial strength to the maximum of 34 ever in its history.
