Collegium reiterates KM Joseph’s elevation as Supreme Court judge


Mumbai,jul 20:
The Supreme Court Collegium on Friday reiterated the name of Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice K M Joseph for appointment as apex court judge. The Collegium said it has “carefully considered” the observations made by the Union Law Minister and nothing adverse was pointed on Joseph’s suitability.
The Collegium also recommended Orissa High Court Chief Justice Vineet Saran and Madras High Court Chief Justice Indira Banerjee to the Supreme Court.
The Central government, earlier this year, turned down the proposal to elevate Justice K M Joseph to the top court, saying his promotion may not be “appropriate” and needs to be reconsidered.However, a reiteration by the Collegium would now make it incumbent upon the government to issue a warrant for the appointment of Justice Joseph to the Supreme Court.
