Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi administered the oath to the newly appointed Judges. 

The new Judges (in the order of seniority) are:

With the new appointments, the working strength of the High Court has now increased to 35.

The official notification for appointment issued on March 24, 2022, read thus:

"In exercise of the power conferred by clause (1) of Article 217 of the Constitution of India, the President is pleased to appoint (i) Smt. Poonam A. Bamba and (ii) Ms. Swarana Kanta Sharma, to be Judges of the Delhi High Court, in that order of seniority, with effect from the date they assume charge of their respective offices."
