This vacation will witness a rare instance of the Chief Justice of India himself presiding over a vacation bench.
The Supreme Court will be closed for the annual Summer Vacation from 13th May to 30th June, 2019.
Division bench of Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice Sanjiv Khanna and that of Justice Arun Mishra and Hon'ble Mr. Justice M.R. Shah are nominated for first and second benches [13.5.2019 to 24.5-2019) of the first part of vacation.
Third bench of the first part of vacation (25.05.2019 to 28.05.2019) and First bench of second part of vacation (29.05.2019 to 30.05.2019), (a week after pronouncement of General election result on 23rd May), will be presided by the Chief Justice of India along with Justice MR Shah. So it is most likely that this bench would be hearing probable Government formation disputes if there is no majority for any political party.
Second, third and fourth bench of second part of vacation, are Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Justice MR Shah, Justice Indu Malhotra and Justice MR Shah, and Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice Ajay Rastogi.
