New Delhi: The Centre on Wednesday (04 March, 2020) notified the transfer of Justice Subramonium Prasad, Additional Judge of the Madras High Court, as an Additional Judge of the Delhi High Court. The Supreme Court Collegium had proposed to transfer him to the Delhi High Court on February 12, the very same date it made its recommendation to transfer Justice Muralidhar from Delhi High Court to Punjab and Haryana High Court.

The notification released by Ministry of Law and Justice said,-

In exercise of powers conferred by clause (q) of Article 222 of the Constitution of India, is pleased to transfer Shri Justice Subramonium Prasad, Additional Judge of the Madras High Court, as an Additional Judge of the Delhi High Court and to direct him to assume charge of his office in the Delhi High Court.”

In December 2018, the Supreme Court had dismissed a writ petition which had challenged the appointment of Justice Subramonium Prasad as additional judge. The challenge was made on the argument that he lacked sufficient practice in Madras HC and also in courts subordinate to it. He was elevated as the additional judge of the court on June 4, 2018.
