Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana has allowed the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) to use the new auditorium of the Supreme Court for the farewell function of Justice Vineet Saran. .The SCBA, in a circular issued on May 8, thanked the CJI for his decision to accept the proposal made by the bar body to hold farewell function in the auditorium instead of Supreme Court lawns. The SCBA President Vikas Singh had written a letter to CJI Ramana last week seeking permission to use the new auditorium. "Hon'ble Mr. Justice NV Ramana, Chief Justice of India has accepted our request to provide auditorium in C-block, New Additional Building, Pragati Maidan for the farewell function and we are extremely thankful to him for the same," the SCBA circular said. It also said that this would be the first time that a farewell function organised by SCBA would be held in the auditorium. The circular also thanked the judges committee for taking time out on May 8 and visiting the auditorium and inspecting the seating capacity and parking so that the farewell function can be held in the auditorium.
