Patna HC Chief Justice Menon to take charge of Delhi HC tomorrow
Patna High Court Chief Justice Rajendra Menon will be sworn in as the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court tomorrow morning by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.
However, the inclusion of Justice Menon will not add to the depleted number of judges of the Delhi High Court as its Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal has been elevated as the Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court.
The Delhi High Court with a sanctioned strength of 60 judges would continue to function with 35 even after Justice Menon takes charge.
Justice Menon, who was the Chief Justice of Patna High Court, was earlier a judge in the Gwalior Bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court.
He was elevated as the Patna High Court Chief Justice in March last year.
The Supreme Court collegium had recommended the transfer of Justice Menon to Delhi High Court on July 16.
