SC Collegium Recommends 10 Advocates, 1 Judicial Officer For Appointment As Allahabad HC Judges [Read Resolution]

The Supreme Court Collegium by a resolution dated February 12, 2019, has recommended the elevation of 10 advocates and 1 judicial officer as judges of Allahabad High Court.

The Collegium comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices A.K. Sikri and S.A. Bobde after scrutinizing the material placed before them, including the observations made by the Department of Justice has recommended the following advocates:-

  1. Vipin Chandra Dixit
  2. Ramanand Pandey
  3. Shekhar Kumar Yadav
  4. Ravi Nath Tilhari
  5. Deepak Verma
  6. Gautam Chaudhary
  7. Manish Kumar
  8. Vivek Ratan Agrawal
  9. Samit Gopal
  10. Alok Kumar Yadav

The Collegium by another resolution has also recommended the elevation of judicial officer Ali Zamin, whose proposal was earlier deferred on October 31, 2018, for taking more inputs.

The Allahabad High Court collegium on February 14, 2018, had recommended the elevation of 33 advocates, out of which 17 were accepted by the Supreme Court collegium and the rest 16 names were deferred on September 25, 2018.

While making the recommendation, the Collegium taking note of the fact that net professional income of some of the recommendees is less than the prescribed minimum income limit of Rs.7 lacs has considered it appropriate to relax the income criterion to a reasonable extent in cases where such recommendees belong to categories of SC/ST/OBC or represent Government in their capacity as Standing /Panel Counsel before the Courts.
