Bar Association protests against Supreme Court Collegium’s recommendations, says won’t work on Monday

New Delhi. New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) on Thursday said it has proposed to transfer high court judge Justice Gaurang Kanth to Calcutta. This transfer is a rare case. The Delhi High Court Bar Association has unanimously decided to request its members to stay away from work on Monday. The association has said that there is serious concern about the recommendation of the Supreme Court Collegium.

The Bar Association has passed a resolution saying that such a recommendation should be strongly opposed as such transfer would result in adverse effect on justice delivery.

The transfer of the sitting judge is taking place despite the existing vacancies in the Delhi High Court.

Supreme Court collegium should reconsider

Despite this, Justice Gaurang Kanth is being transferred. The recommendation to appoint Kantha as chief justice of the Kolkata High Court and Justice Siddharth Mridul as chief justice of the Manipur High Court needs to be reconsidered.
