The Supreme Court Collegium in a meeting held on December 12, 2018, has recommended the elevation of Justices Rajendra Menon and Pradeep Nandrajog to the Supreme Court.

Justice Rajendra Menon

Justice Menon is currently serving as the Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court since he took over in August this year. Prior to that, he had been serving as the Chief Justice of the Patna High Court.

He took oath as Additional Judge of the Madhya Pradesh High Court on April 1, 2002. Thereafter, he got posted at the Principal Bench at Jabalpur of the said High Court in 2008, before his elevation as Chief Justice of the Patna High Court in March 2017.

Justice Pradeep Nandrajog

Justice Nandrajog is currently serving as the Chief Justice of the Rajasthan High Court after he got transferred from the Delhi High Court in March 2017.

He was elevated as an Additional Judge of the Delhi High Court on December 20, 2002, and became a Permanent Judge on April 16, 2004.

If the proposal for the elevation of two Justices is approved by the Central Government before the scheduled retirement of Justice Madan B. Lokur this month, the working strength of the Supreme Court will rise to 29 judges against a sanctioned strength of 31 judges.
