The Supreme Court has notified a fresh roster to be effective from October 5.

As per the new roster, PILs and letter petitions are to be dealt with by benches headed by CJI, Justices Ramana, Nariman, Lalit, Khanwilkar, Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and Nageswara Rao.

Election matters, Social Justice matters and Habeas Corpus will be dealt with only by the bench headed by the CJI.

Contempt of Court matters are allotted to the benches headed by the CJI and Justice U U Lalit.

Religious and Charitable Endowment Matters are allotted to the benches headed by Justices N V Ramana, UU Lalit, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan.

Arbitration Matters to benches of CJI, Justice Ramana, R F Nariman, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee.

At present, the roster notified with effect from July 1, 2019 is in prevalence.

The subject wise roster system was introduced by former CJI Dipak Misra in February 2018, in the backdrop of 'master of roster' controversy which erupted after the press conference by four senior judges, who alleged that the CJI was selectively assigning cases to benches of preferences, ignoring seniority of judges.
