Unanimous decision: SC Collegium

Recommendation on judges’ elevation a result of extensive deliberations, it says
The Supreme Court Collegium led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said it took “extensive deliberations and discussions” among themselves and their colleagues to unanimously resolve to recommend four names for elevation as judges to the apex court. Resolutions of the five-member Collegium published by the Supreme Court on Wednesday revealed that the Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court, Justice Hemant Gupta, Gujarat High Court Chief Justice R. Subhash Reddy, Patna High Court Chief Justice Mukeshkumar Rasikbhai Shah, and Tripura High Court Chief Justice Ajay Rastogi were finally picked after concluding that they were “more deserving and suitable in all respects than other Chief Justices and senior puisne judges of High Courts for being appointed as judges of the Supreme Court. In the combined High Court seniority list, Justices Gupta, Reddy, Shah and Rastogi stand at serial number four, five, 17 and 25 respectively. The Collegium said another prime consideration for zeroing in on the four names were that the High Courts of Punjab and Haryana, Gujarat and Rajasthan had remained unrepresented in the Supreme Court since long. Justice Gupta’s parent High Court is Punjab and Haryana while that of Justice Shah is Gujarat and that of Justice Rastogi is Rajasthan. Justice Reddy was elevated as a judge of the Andhra Pradesh High Court, his parent High Court, in December 2002. “While considering the name of Justice R. Subhash Reddy, the Collegium has taken into consideration the fact that at present there is no judge in the Supreme Court from the State of Telangana and he belongs to the State of Telangana,” the Collegium noted.
