SC Collegium Reiterates Proposal To Transfer Justice M N Bhandari To Allahabad HC

The Supreme Court collegium has refused to accede to the request of Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari to reconsider the recommendation to transfer him from Rajasthan High Court to Allahabad High Court.

On January 15, the Collegium had proposed his transfer to Allahabad HC in the interest of "better administration of justice".

Upon his views being sought on the proposal, Justice Bhandari expressed his unwillingness to go to Allahabad HC and requested for reconsideration of the recommendation.

But even on reconsideration, the Collegium comprising CJI Gogoi and Justices Sikri, Bobde, Ramana and Arun Mishra reiterated the original proposal.
