SC Collegium Recommends Appointment of 17 Advocates as Allahabad HC Judges; One Advocate as a Judge of Meghalaya HC

The Supreme Court Collegium has recommended elevation of 17 advocates as Judges of the Allahabad HC, and another lawyer as Meghalaya HC Judge.

The SC Collegium comprising CJI Dipak Misra and Justices Ranjan Gogoi and MB Lokur – in its September 15 resolution – recommended that the following advocates be elevated as Allahabad HC judges:

1. Pankaj Bhatia

2.  Alok Mathur

3. Prakash Padia

4. Shamim Ahmed

5. Vivek Varma

6. Saurabh Lavania

7. Sanjay Kumar Singh

8. Saurabh Shyam Shamshery

9. Ramendra Pratap Singh

10. Piyush Agrawal

11. Jaspreet Singh

12. Rajeev Singh

13. Manju Rani Chauhan

14. Karunesh Singh Pawar

15. Dr. Yogendra Kumar Srivastava

16. Manish Mathur

17. Rohit Ranjan Agarwal

The Allahabad HC Collegium had proposed the names of thirty three candidates to the SC Collegium last February. The SC Collegium, however, deferred its decision on the proposal for elevation of 16 other advocates.

Out of the deferred names, the Collegium mentioned 8 advocates, whose names would be taken up for consideration after some time. These names are Shekhar Kumar Yadav, Deepak Verma, Gautam Chaudhary, Dinesh Pathak, Manish Kumar, Samit Gopal, Manish Goyal, and Alok Kumar Yadav.

In the resolution, the Collegium has also mentioned that the complaints received against a few recommended names were found to be baseless on examination and dismissed.

In another resolution passed by the SC Collegium, it recommended appointment of senior advocate Hamarsan Singh Thangkhiew as a judge of the Meghalaya HC.
