Since assuming office a little over a month ago, Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has held six crucial collegium meetings for filling up of 29 vacancies in high courts and four in the Supreme Court to tackle the huge backlog of pendency in the higher judiciary. The collegium also did not shy away from invoking provisions of Memorandum of Procedure to appoint a judge of the same high court as Chief Justice of parent high courts of Bombay and Calcutta. The CJI Gogoi-led collegium, which also includes justices Madan B Lokur, Kurian Joseph, A K Sikri and S A Bobde, on October 30, recommended elevation of four chief justices of Madhya Pradesh, Patna, Gujarat and Tripura high courts as apex court judges and the names were cleared by the government within 48 hours, creating a history of its kind.
