Uttarakhand HC gets 3 new judges including SC Secretary General
Harnaresh Singh Gill, whose name was pending with the government for two-and-a-half years, was also appointed as an additional judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
Sources in the government said Gill's appointment came days after the Supreme Court collegium had asked the government not to keep its recommendations pending and said it should decide either way by appointing the candidate or returning the recommendation.
Their names were recommended by the Supreme Court collegium earlier this month.
Another notification announced the appointment of Gill as an additional judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Nine other additional judges in the Punjab and Haryana High Court were elevated as permanent judges, the Law Ministry said.
