Two of the judges are set to retire soon. How long the other two judges remain rests on the government.
With the Supreme Court Collegium intimating its proposal to transfer Justice Ranjit V More to the Meghalaya High Court, the Bombay High Court could lose four of its senior-most judges over the next two months.
Chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog, who was transferred from Rajasthan in April last year, is set to retire next week, on February 24.
The second senior-most judge, Justice SC Dharmadhikari, recently tendered his resignation. The Central government is yet to notify any response to the resignation tendered. Justice SC Dharmadhikari otherwise has two more years of service remaining as a High Court judge.
Also nearing retirement is Justice BP Dharmadhikari, who was elevated as a Bombay High Court judge in 2004, and was made a permanent High Court judge in 2006. Justice BP Dharmadhikari, who is presently the third senior-most judge of the Bombay High Court, is due to retire in April this year.
In this backdrop, the Collegium has now disclosed that following a meeting held last week, it decided to recommended the transfer of Justice More to the Meghalaya High Court.
Justice More is the presently the fourth senior most judge of the Bombay High Court.
