New Delhi, October 14

The Centre on Thursday notified the appointment of seven judges to the High Courts of Patna, Allahabad and Bombay.

Advocates Sandeep Kumar, Purnendu Singh, Satyavrat Verma and Rajesh Kumar Verma were appointed to the Patna High Court; judicial officer Om Prakash Tripathi to the Allahabad High Court; and judicial officers Anil Laxman Pansare and Sandipkumar Chandrabhan to the Bombay High Court, the Department of Justice said.

This is the fifth set of appointments notified by the government following the recent recommendations made by the Supreme Court collegium to fill judicial vacancies in various HCs, most of which have been functioning with fewer number of judges compared with their sanctioned strength.

The Centre had on Wednesday notified the appointment of 14 judges to the High Courts of Telangana, Kerala and Orissa which will get seven, four and three judges, respectively.

On Tuesday, it had notified the appointment of 17 judges to the Allahabad, Madras and Gauhati HCs. On October 11, three advocates and two judicial officers were elevated as judges of the Rajasthan High Court. A couple of days before that, eight judges were elevated as Chief Justices of HCs, while five HC Chief Justices were transferred based on the recommendations made by the Supreme Court collegium.
