The Central Government has cleared the appointment of nine additional judges of the Madras High Court as permanent judges.
A notification to this effect was issued on Friday by the Central Government. The judges who have now been made permanent judges of the Madras High Court are:
M Nirmal Kumar
N Anand Venkatesh
Seven of these judges, Justices PT Asha, M Nirmal Kumar, Subramonium Prasad, N Anand Venkatesh, GK Ilanthiraiyan, Krishnan Ramaswamy and C Saravanan were appointed as additional judges in June 2018.
The proposal to make these judges permanent judges of the Madras High Court was made by the Supreme Court Collegium last month.
Interestingly, the notification comes on the same day that Justice Subramonium Prasad took charge as a judge of the Delhi High Court, following his recent transfer from the Madras High Court while still an additional judge. The notification clearing his proposed transfer to the Delhi High Court was issued earlier this month.
