The Collegium comprising of CJI Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Madan B. Lokur, Kurian Joseph, A.K. Sikri and S.A. Bobde took into consideration the factors of seniority, merit and integrity in making the above recommendations.

“… the Collegium has taken into consideration combined seniority on all-India basis of Chief Justices and senior puisne Judges of High Courts, apart from their merit and integrity. The Collegium has also kept in mind, while recommending the above names that the High Courts of Punjab & Haryana, Gujarat and Rajasthan have remained unrepresented in the Supreme Court since long,” the resolution reads.

If the recommendations are cleared, it will bring the working strength of the Supreme Court to 28, just three judges short of its sanctioned strength of 31 judges.

Justices Hemant Gupta, R. Subhash Reddy,Mukeshkumar Rasikbhai Shah and Ajay Rastogi are the Chief Justices of Madhya Pradesh High Court, Gujarat High Court, Patna High Court and Tripura High Court respectively.
