The Supreme Court has cleared the name of Punjab and Haryana High Court judge Justice AK Mittal for appointment as the Chief Justice of the Meghalaya High Court.

In its note, the apex court collegium comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice SA Bobde and Justice NV Ramana asserted that the office of the Chief Justice of the Meghalaya High Court would be falling vacant shortly, consequent upon the retirement of Justice MY Mir. Therefore, appointment to the office was required to be made.

Justice Mittal is the senior-most judge in the Punjab and Haryana High Court and was functioning there since his elevation. “Having regard to all relevant factors, the Collegium finds Justice AK Mittal suitable in all respects for being appointed as Chief Justice of the Meghalaya High Court. The Collegium resolves to recommend accordingly,” the note added.

It asserted that the Collegium is conscious of the fact that consequent upon the proposed appointment there would be two Chief Justices from the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which is serving two states and is the third largest High Court in the country, with a sanctioned strength of 85 judges.
