Almost every name recommended for appointment as a Delhi High Court judge has been cleared, Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana said on Thursday, while hoping that the Central government would clear the remaining ones soon..The CJI said that this was a result of a lot of persuasion from Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul who would check with him on the status of the appointments, on a daily basis. “I must say there was a lot of persuasion by Justice Kaul every day for appointment of Delhi judges. Every day he used to come and ask, 'Chief what happened to the Delhi judges file? Where it is? Why they are not cleared?' I think now, almost everything has been cleared except one or two names. I hope the government will clear those names also,” the CJI said..Justice Ramana was speaking at a function organised by the Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) to bid him farewell on his superannuation.CJI Ramana had served as Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court from September 2013 to February 2014 before he was elevated as a judge of the Supreme Court.The CJI said that at present, there are six judges at the Supreme Court who have served at the Delhi High Court. That number will decrease to five with his impending retirement."I hope some more judges will join soon," he added..He thanked the Delhi Bar for its support during the “challenging days” prior to his appointment as CJI.“I remember the days of the challenge. An instance had taken place two years back when I was a judge. Every member of the Bar, especially in Delhi, stood in solidarity and passed a resolution supporting me. I am extremely proud and happy to have such support.”.During his speech, the CJI said that administration of justice is a challenge and that he learned a lot about it from the Registry, including listing of matters, preparation of roster and allotment of cases at the Delhi High Court.“It helped me a lot in working as Chief Justice of India. This was a launching pad and a learning period for me to be a successful Chief Justice of India.”.He also praised several practices at the Delhi High Court and said he enjoyed hearing the “chronic public interest litigants” who appear.“Delhi High Court has peculiar features and speciality. It is located in the capital. The amount of litigation, variety of subjects, we cannot compare with any High Court in the country. The lawyers have to deal with these subjects with thorough knowledge and at the same time they must complete within a given time. The discipline and courtesy shown to the other side is also amazing.”.The farewell ceremony was attended by the Supreme Court's Justices Kaul, Indira Banerjee, Sanjiv Khanna, S Ravindra Bhat and Hima Kohli. Also in attendance were Delhi High Court Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and all other judges of the High Court.The CJI is set to retire on Friday.
