Madhumati Mitra, brief acting registrar of NUJS, to become Calcutta HC judge

NUJS Kolkata former acting registrar Madhumati Mitra will be joining the Calcutta high court as a judge alongside five others, according to the Supreme Court’s collegium resolution, after having recently resigned from the law school having completed a little over two months in her post, as we had reported.

She had declined to comment at the time.

Mitra had been recommended alongside one advocate and two other judicial officers, in November 2017, to join as a judge at the high court but the high court had deferred the four appointments after receiving objections to these recommendations.

But the Supreme Court collegium eventually advised the high court that the objections were baseless and that the four recommended judges should be appointed to the high court in order of seniority.

Mitra was the second acting registrar at NUJS after Sarfaraz Ahmed Khan and according to several sources at the law school at the time.

West Bengal additional district judge Sikha Sen has succeeded Mitra as acting registrar at NUJS.
