SC collegium decides: Freeze on new postings until next CJI takes over | India News,The Indian Express

Hours after the meeting, the Secretariat of the CJI said that it has received a communication from the Union Law Minister requesting the CJI to “recommend the name of his successor”.

The Supreme Court collegium, headed by Chief Justice of India N V Ramana, met Wednesday and decided to not make any recommendation for the appointment of judges until the next CJI, Justice U U Lalit, takes over later this month.

Hours after the meeting, the Secretariat of the CJI said that it has received a communication at 9.30 pm, dated August 3, from the Union Law Minister requesting the CJI to “recommend the name of his successor”.

“I have written to the Chief Justice and hope for a response soon,” Law Minister Kiren Rijiju told The Indian Express Thursday.

At the collegium meeting, it is learnt that some members expressed their opinion that it would be more prudent to wait until the next CJI takes over for the appointments to be recommended for high courts and the Supreme Court. CJI Ramana is set to retire on August 26.

According to established convention, the collegium does not make any fresh recommendation for such appointments once the incumbent CJI recommends his successor and the most senior judge is named the CJI-designate.
