The Supreme Court Col­legium has rec­om­mended the name of Jus­tice Ramesh Ran­ganathan, se­nior-most judge of the Hy­der­abad High Court, for ap­point­ment as Chief Jus­tice of the Ut­tarak­hand High Court

The Supreme Court col­legium, com­pris­ing Chief Jus­tice of In­dia Ran­jan Go­goi, Jus­tice M.B. Lokur and Jus­tice Kurian Joseph, noted that Jus­tice Ran­ganathan was the se­nior-most judge at the Hy­der­abad High Court, and found him suit­able in all re­spects for be­ing ap­pointed as Chief Jus­tice of the Ut­tarak­hand High Court.

The va­cancy at the Ut­tarak­hand HC was caused by the el­e­va­tion of Jus­tice Joseph to the Supreme Court. While mak­ing the rec­om­men­da­tion, the col­legium noted that there was only one Chief Jus­tice orig­i­nally hail­ing from TS and AP High Court — Chief Jus­tice of the Gu­jarat High Court Jus­tice R. Sub­hash Reddy – who is set to re­tire in Jan­uary 2019. Jus­tice Ran­ganathan was el­e­vated as ad­di­tional judge of the AP High Court on May 26, 2005, and ap­pointed per­ma­nent judge on Fe­bru­ary 20, 2006. He served as Act­ing Chief Jus­tice of the High Court from July 30, 2016, to July 6, 2018.
