Supreme Court Collegium Recommends Transfer of 23 High Court Judges

NEW DELHI: In a major development, the Supreme Court Collegium headed by Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud has recommended the transfer of 23 high court judges, including including Justice Hemant M Prachchhak of Gujarat High Court who declined to stay conviction of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a defamation case.

This is seen as a major overhaul as the Collegium, also comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Sanjiv Khanna, B R Gavai, and Surya Kant, in its meeting held on August 3, 2023 has recommended transfer these judges for better administration of justice.

Those transferred are Justice Vivek Kumar Singh from Allahabad HC to Madras HC; Justice Alpesh Y Kogje from Gujarat HC to Allahabad HC; Justice Kumari Gita Gopi from Gujarat HC to Madras HC; Justice Hemant M Prachchhak from Gujarat HC to Patna HC; Justice Samir J Dave from Gujarat HC to Rajasthan HC; Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan from Punjab and Haryana HC to Allahabad HC; Justice Avneesh Jhingan from Punjab and Haryana HC to Gujarat HC; Justice Raj Mohan Singh from Punjab and Haryana HC to Madhya Pradesh HC; and, Justice Arun Monga from Punjab and Haryana HC to Rajasthan HC.

In a separate resolution, the Collegium proposed to transfer Justice Prakash Padia, judge, High Court of Judicature at Allahabad, to the High Court of Jharkhand, for better administration of justice.

“By a representation dated August 8, 2023, Justice Padia has requested a reconsideration of the proposal for his transfer. In the alternative, he has sought transfer to the High Court of Madhya Pradesh, High Court of Judicature at Patna or the High Court of Uttarakhand. We have considered the requests made by Justice Padia. The Collegium does not find any merit in the requests made by him," the resolution stated.

In a separate resolution, the Collegium proposed the transfer of Justice C Manavendranath Roy, judge, High Court of Andhra Pradesh, to the High Court of Gujarat, for better administration of justice.

By a representation of August 7, 2023, Justice C Manavendranath Roy has requested a reconsideration of the proposal for his transfer and in the alternative, has sought transfer to the High Court for the State of Telangana.
