New Delhi, Aug 26. The Centre has approved all nine names recommended by the Supreme Court Collegium, including three women judges, for the appointment as judges to the top court.

According to sources familiar with the development, the names have been sent to the President for approval.

Last week, the Supreme Court Collegium, which is headed by Chief Justice N.V. Ramana and comprises Justices — U.U. Lalit, A.M. Khanwilkar, D.Y. Chandrachud and L. Nageswara Rao, had recommended nine names, including eight high court judges and a senior advocate for the elevation to the top court.

Justice B.V. Nagarathna of the Karnataka High Court is in line to become the first woman Chief Justice of India. Justice Nagarathna’s father, Justice E.S. Venkataramiah had been a CJI for a few months in 1989.

Supreme Court judge Justice Navin Sinha retired on August 18, which left 10 vacancies against sanctioned strength of 35 in the top court. There was no appointment after September 2019. After the nine judges are sworn in, the top court will be left with only one vacancy.

The other two women judges selected by the Collegium are Justice Hima Kohli, who is the Chief Justice of Telangana High Court and Justice Bela Trivedi, who is a judge at the Gujarat High Court.

Senior advocate P.S. Narasimha is the Collegium’s choice for the direct appointment to the bench. Narasimha’s recommendation has come after the retirement of Justice Rohinton F. Nariman, who was the fifth lawyer to be directly appointed from the bar. Justice Nariman retired on August 12.

Other names finalised by the collegium are — Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka, Chief Justice of Karnataka High Court; Vikram Nath, Chief Justice of Gujarat High Court; Justice Jitendra Kumar Maheshwari, Chief Justice of Sikkim High Court; Justice C.T. Ravikumar, judge in Kerala High Court; and Justice M.M. Sundresh, judge in Kerala High Court.

It is probably the first time nine judges have been recommended for elevation by the Collegium, and the Centre has approved all the names.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
