PIL Matters Will Now Be Heard By 5 Senior - Most Judges: Latest Supreme Court Roster

A new Supreme Court roster which is set to be implemented from July 1, 2019, when the Supreme Court reopens after the summer break.

The notable change which brought in the Bench portfolio is the jurisdiction over Letter Petitions and Public Interest Litigation (PIL) which has now been allocated to Benches headed by the five senior-most judges of the Supreme Court namely, Chief Justice of India R Gogoi, Justice SA Bobde, Justice NV Ramana, Justice Arun Mishra and Justice RF Nariman.

Another notable change is that the subject of Ecological Imbalancepreviously dealt with by Justice Lokur, no longer finds a mention in the roster and the social justice matters, which were also dealt by Justice Lokur, will now be handled by the CJI Bench.

Matters relating to Contempt of Court will be heard by the Bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra and Justice UU Lalit besides the CJI. Justice Rohinton Nariman who dealt with Company Laws and Insolvency cases earlier will no longer hear the same. Cases on Company Law, SEBI and RBI have now be heard by the CJI and Justice Arun Mishra.
