The Supreme Court Collegium, in its meeting on December 13 last year, had recommended the elevation of these five High Court judges to the Supreme Court.

On February 4, President Draupadi Murmu had approved the appointment of three Chief Justices and two Judges of High Courts to the Supreme Court.

The working strength of the Apex Court has now gone up to 32, with two vacancies.

The remaining vacancies at the top court of the country could also be filled in the near future, if the recommendations made by the Supreme Court Collegium in its January 31 meeting are notified by the Central government.

On the last day of January this year, the Collegium had proposed elevation of Allahabad High Court Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Gujarat High Court Chief Justice Aravind Kumar as Judges of the Apex Court.
