The Central Government has notified the appointment of following four Advocates as Additional Judges of Punjab and Haryana High Court:

Ms. Manjari Nehru Kaul
Mr. Harsimran Singh Sethi
Mr. Arun Kumar Monga
Mr. Manoj Bajaj

The recommendations were made by the Supreme Court collegium in September this year, after they were forwarded by the then Chief Justice of the Punjab & Haryana High Court on 24th November, 2017, in consultation with his two senior-most colleagues.

As per the resolution, the collegium had eleven candidates before it. The other Advocates whose candidature was considered were Sukant Gupta, Sanjay Vashisth, Jasdeep Singh Gill, Mansur Ali, Sunil Kumar Singh Panwar, Deepinder Singh Nalwa, and Harsh Bunger. While consideration of their cases was deferred without allotting any specific reason, the collegium had said that the proposal for elevating Deepinder Singh Nalwa and Harsh Bunger would be taken up for consideration after some time.
