Chennai: The Madras High Court is set to get 15 new judges with the process for issuing the warrant of appointment being set in motion.

This will increase the sitting strength of the judges in the court from the existing 39 to 54, against the sanctioned strength of 75. Of the 30 names recommended by the High Court collegium in February 2015, 15 have been selected for appointment as judges, court sources said.

Six of the proposed judges are from the sub-ordinate judiciary while nine are from the Bar. The nine lawyers who are being elevated as judges on Monday wrote their names in the Devanagari script fulfilling a formality before their appointments are officially made.

They are V Parthiban, R Subramanian, M Govindaraj, M Sundar, R Sureshkumar, Nisha Banu, M S Ramesh, S M Subramanian and Anitha Sumanth.

Similarly, six other persons in the cadre of district judges are also being elevated as the judges of the High Court. The list includes present Registrar General of the High Court Ravindran, Velmurugan, Bhaskaran, G Jayachandran, Basheer Ahmed (retired) and Karthikeyan.
