The Supreme Court collegium has recommended the elevation of five lawyers as judges of the Bombay High Court.
The collegium comprising Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, Justice SA Bobde and Justice NV Ramana approved the following names:
Avinash G. Gharote
Milind Narendra Jadhav
The court had ten names before it. In addition to the five names listed above, it was also considering the candidature of Advocates Avinash S. Deshmukh, Manjari Dhanesh Shah, J.R. Shah, Abhay Kumar Ahuja and Devidas Pangam. The ten recommendations had been forwarded by the Bombay High Court collegium in May last year.
The Supreme Court collegium, however, deferred the proposal for elevation of Advocate Abhay Kumar Ahuja and remitted to the Bombay High Court the candidature of the remaining four Advocates.
