Transfer of two judges, Justice TS Sivagnanam (from Madras to Calcutta) and Justice Soumen Sen (from Calcutta to Orissa) which was recommended by the Collegium along with the above 15 names, have not been notified yet.

The Revenue Bar Association (RBA), Chennai had recently addressed a representation to Chief Justice of India NV Ramana against the proposed transfer of Justice TS Sivagnanam from the Madras High Court to the Calcutta High Court.

The RBA had voiced concern that the transfer of Justice Sivagnanam to the Calcutta High Court would lead to a vacuum in the Madras High Court, which would affect the dispensation of justice especially in tax cases and specially ordered cases.
