As on September 1, there are 398 vacancies across High Courts in India, informed Union Law Minister RS Prasad in a response made recently to Rajya Sabha member and DMK MP P Wilson.

In February this year, Wilson had raised the issue during the zero hour in the Rajya Sabha, pointing out that nearly one-third of sanctioned posts across High Courts were vacant and calling for the resolution of the stand off between the executive and the judiciary when it came to judicial appointments.

In this regard, he had also raised concern that there were about 213 pending collegium recommendations which the Centre was yet to sign off on at the time.
