From 13 April to 16 October this year, there was no system in place to appoint judges in India leading to increase in vacancies in the courts as the collegium system was replaced by NJAC Act, which was under scrutiny by Supreme Court.

Realizing the shortage of number of judges at various high courts, on 18 October the Law Ministry sent files of the additional judges to the collegium for its immediate consideration, it was reported. On the recommendation of the collegium, the extension or ‘reappointment’ was cleared by the government and sent to the President for his assent and later notified.
