The Indian Supreme Court appoints two new judges

On Friday, the Chief Justice of India, DY Chandrachud, swore in Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra & Kalpathy Venkataraman Viswanathan as the judges of the Supreme Court.

On Friday, the Supreme Court welcomed two new judges with the inauguration of Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra and attorney Kalpathy Venkataraman Vishwanathan. In a ceremony organised at the Supreme Court’s auditorium on Friday, Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud took the oath of office to the two as judges of the supreme court.

By this, the Supreme Court’s total number of judges reached the sanctioned level of 34. But the strength of Supreme Court judges will only be maintained for a short time. Notably, three judges will retire in June.

Justices KM Joseph, Ajay Rastogi, and V Ramasubramanian will end their terms during the next month’s summer break. The supreme court will be on vacation from May 22 to July 2.

Justice Vishwanathan, the newly appointed Supreme Court judge, will replace Justice JB Pardiwala as Chief Justice of India on August 11, 2030, and will serve until May 25, 2031. On Thursday, President Droupadi Murmu issued the warrant for the appointment of Justice Mishra and Justice Vishwanathan to the Supreme Court. Arjun Ram Meghwan, the new Law Minister, made the announcement on Twitter.
