The appointment of two lawyers as judges of the Patna High Court has been announced by the central government.
The two lawyers who have been appointed are:
– Khatim Reza;
– Dr. Anshuman Pandey.
On September 23, 2021, the Supreme Court collegium initially proposed their appointment.
Despite the fact that the files had been returned by the Law Ministry, the Collegium remained committed to its decision and restated its recommendation in February 2022.
The Central government announced the appointment of seven judicial officers as judges of the Patna High Court just two days ago.
The operational strength of the Patna High Court would increase from 27 to 36 with the appointment of nine justices in three days. The High Court has a sanctioned strength of 53 judges.
