SC Collegium recommends elevation of 2 HC judges

| @indiablooms | 06 Jul 2023, 12:56 am

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Collegium has recommended the elevation of two high court judges to the Supreme Court.

The recommended judges are Justice Ujjal Bhuyan, currently serving as the Chief Justice of the Telangana High Court, and Justice SV Bhatti, Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court.

Justice Bhuyan, whose parent high court is the Gauhati High Court, has a long tenure as a judge and has gained significant expertise in various fields of law.

He has specialised knowledge in the law of taxation and has also served as a judge of the Bombay High Court, where he handled a wide range of cases.

The collegium resolution emphasized Justice Bhuyan's reputation for integrity and competence.

Justice Bhatti, on the other hand, was appointed as a judge of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh in 2013 and was transferred to the Kerala High Court in 2019.

The Collegium resolution highlights the need for representation from the Andhra Pradesh High Court in the Supreme Court since August 2022. Currently, the Supreme Court is functioning with a strength of 31 judges, three less than its sanctioned strength of 34.
