The Central Government today notified the transfer of Mr. Justice Sanjib Banerjee, Chief Justice, Madras High Court to Meghalaya High Court.

The Supreme Court Collegium, in its meeting held on 16th September 2021, had recommended the transfer of Mr. Justice Sanjib Banerjee, Chief Justice, Madras High Court to Meghalaya High Court.

A notification issued in this regard states thus:

"In exercise of the power conferred by clause (I) of Article 222 of the Constitution of India, the President, after consultation with the Chief Justice of India, is pleased to transfer Shri Justice Sanjib Banerjee, Chief Justice of the Madras High Court, as the Chief Justice of the Meghalaya High Court and to direct him to assume charge of the office of the Chief Justice of the Meghalaya High Court."

Recently, over 200 practicing advocates of the Madras High Court have written to the Chief Justice of India, N. V. Ramana, and other four members of the Collegium expressing their anguish over the seemingly abrupt decision of transferring CJ Banerjee.

The Madras Bar Association has also passed a resolution urging the Supreme Court Collegium to reconsider the recommendations to transfer CJ Sanjib Banerjee to Meghalaya High Court.

Expressing 'deep concern and disappointment' with the decision of the Supreme Court collegium to transfer Chief Justice Sanjib Bannerjee of the Madras High Court to the Meghalaya High Court, The Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reform (CJAR) had also sought the recall of the Collegium's decision.
