Seven new judges take oath in Delhi High Court

New Delhi, Sat, 12 Apr 2008 NI Wire

Taking note of the large number of vacancies in high court judges resulting into hindrance to the administration of criminal justice system, the government on Friday appointed seven judges for Delhi High Court taking the total strength to forty.


Five of the new judges: J R Midha, V K Shali, Rajiv Shahi Endlaw, Manmohan Singh and Rajiv Shakdher belong to the Bar while two others: M C Garg and Sunil Gaur were trail court judges.

Acting Chief Justice (Designate) T S Thakur administered the oath of office to the new judges. The new Chief Justice for the court is still to be appointed by the President following the elevation of former Chief Justice M K Sharma to the Supreme Court.

Earlier in 2003, it was purposed to increase the approved strength of 33 by appointing three more judges to the service.

As per the guidelines and the judgement of Supreme Court delivered on Oct 06, 1993, the bench of judges of every High Court should be reviewed periodically in accordance with the number of cases pending along with the backlog and expected future filing.

Later in the same year, in a Conference of Chief Justices and Chief Ministers held in December a resolution was passed that the Judge strength of the High Courts should be reviewed once every three years considering the large number cases pending in Subordinate Courts/High Courts.
