SC roster: Only 3 empty chairs post Eqbal+Gowda+Sen

The Supreme Court roster increased to 28 on 24 December after the swearing in of three new judges – former Madras high court chief justice MY Eqbal, former Karnataka high court chief justice Vikramjit Sen, and Orissa high court judge V Gopala Gowda.

62 years-old Sen who fills the Christian representation on the roster since former SC judge Cyriac Joseph’s retirement a year ago, will enjoy the shortest tenure out of the three.

Eqbal and Gowda, aged 61, will retire after a little over three and four years respectively. [The Hindu]

The recommendations for the three judges were made on 5 December.
