    Five new Supreme Court judges took oath on Monday. Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud administered the oath to the newly sworn-in judges in the presence of all judges of the Supreme Court.

    The newly sworn-in judges are :

    1. Justice Pankaj Mithal, Chief Justice of Rajasthan High Court.

    2. Justice Sanjay Karol, Chief Justice of Patna High Court.

    3. Justice P. V. Sanjay Kumar, Chief Justice of Manipur High Court.

    4. Justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah, Judge, Patna High Court and

    5. Justice Manoj Misra, Judge, Allahabad High Court.

    Currently, the Supreme Court of India has a sanctioned strength of thirty-four Judges and is presently functioning with twenty-seven Judges.

    With these appointments, the working strength of the Supreme Court will rise to 32.


    The warrants of appointment were issued by the President on February 4 a day after the Attorney General for India R Venkataramani informed the Supreme Court that the Central Government will very soon clear the recommendations forwarded by the Supreme Court collegium in December 2022 to elevate five High Court judges to the Supreme Court.

    Now there remain only two vacancies at the Supreme Court, which could be filled in the coming days if SC Collegium's January 31 proposal to elevate Allahabad High Court Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Gujarat High Court Chief Justice Aravind Kumar as SC judges, is accepted by the president.
