New Delhi, August 14
President Pratibha Patil today cleared the elevation of Mr Justice P. Sathasivam of the Punjab and Haryana High Court to the Supreme Court. The warrant of his appointment is likely to be issued in a day or two.

With his appointment, the strength of judges in the apex court will go up to 23 against the sanctioned strength of 26. However, the strength will again go down to 22 with Mr Justice P.K. Balasubramanyan’s retirement on August 27.

Born on April 27, 1949, in Kadappanallur village of Erode district, he started his career as a lawyer in the Madras High Court in 1973. Later, he was appointed a judge in the same high court in January 1996.
