Supreme Court recommends names of nine judges for elevation
New Delhi/IBNS: The Collegium headed by Chief Justice of India N V Ramana has recommended nine names, including three women high court judges, to the Centre for appointment as judges at the Supreme Court.
Four of the judges to be elevated are chief justices of high courts, the Supreme Court said in a statement.
The statement came hours after the Chief Justice of India slammed the media for its reports of the matter.
The reports on appointments even before any formal announcement are "counterproductive", Chief Justice NV Ramana said.
The chief justices of high courts whose names are recommended are -- Justices Abhay Shreeniwas Oka of the Karnataka High Court, Vikram Nath of the Gujarat High Court, Jitendra Kumar Maheshwari of Sikkim High Court and Justice Hima Kohli of Telengana High Court.
Besides, names of Justice B V Nagarathna from the Karnataka High Court, Justice C T Ravikumar of Kerala High Court, Justice M M Sundresh of Madras High Court and Justice Bela Trivedi from the Gujarat High Court judge have been recommended by the Collegium.
