Collegium for making addl judges of Karnataka HC as permanent

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Collegium headed by Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud has recommended to the Union government for appointing five additional judges of the Karnataka High Court as permanent judges of that court.

The 3-member Collegium also recommended that Justice Gurusiddaiah Basavaraja should be appointed as an additional judge of the High Court for a fresh term of one year with effect from August 16, 2024.

Those recommended for appointment as permanent judges are Justices Cheppudira Monnappa Poonacha, Anil Bheemsen Katti, Chandrashekhar Mrutyunjaya Joshi, Umesh Manjunathbhat Adiga and Talkad Girigowda Shivashankare Gowda.

According to April 3, 2024 resolution, the high court collegium had on January 20 unanimously recommended that five additional judges be appointed as permanent judges and the term of additional judge Basavaraja be extended for a further period of one year.

"The Chief Minister and the Governor of the State of Karnataka have conveyed their agreement with the above recommendation," the apex Court collegium noted in the resolution uploaded on its website.

With regard to Justice Basavaraja, the Collegium said it fully agreed with the recommendation of the high court Collegium and said that he deserves to be appointed as additional judge for a fresh term of one year.

It said the resolution of the top court Collegium is signed by two members as Justice Gavai is travelling.

"He has, however, verbally conveyed his agreement with the above proposal. His written consent would be placed on the record in due course. The proposal may be processed without waiting for the written consent of the third member of the Collegium since the term of one of the additional judges is going to expire on April 16, 2024," it said.
