However, the name of Justice A. Abhishek Reddy does appear in this list, who has been transferred to the Patna High Court. Significantly, the Telangana High Court Bar Association has been protesting against the proposal of the Supreme Court collegium to transfer him.
The list also contains the name of Justice T. Raja who has been transferred to the Rajasthan High Court from Madras High Court. The Madras High Court Advocates Association recently opposed the proposal to transfer him.
