Srinagar: The Supreme Court Collegium led by Chief Justice Dhananjaya Y Chandrachud and Justices Sanjiv Khanna and B R Gavai has recommended the appointment of two Additional Judges as permanent Judges of the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
 
As per report, Justice Moksha Khajuria Kazmi and Justice Rahul Bharti, who are Additional Judges in the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, were suggested for promotion after a review by the collegium.
 
Justice Rahul Bharti was unanimously recommended for nomination by the Collegium of the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh on August 21, 2023. The Supreme Court Collegium, in accordance with procedures, consulted judges, assessed the quality of Justice Rahul Bharti's judgments, and found them to be "good" and "fairly reasonable," as stated by the evaluating Committee.
 
Similarly, Justice Moksha Khajuria Kazmi's nomination comes after the Chief Justice of the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh proposed her appointment as a permanent Judge on November 18, 2023. A Committee of two judges of the Supreme court had rated the quality of her judgments as "good" and "reasonably well written."
 

After scrutinizing and evaluating the material placed on record for both nominees, the Collegium expressed its considered view that both Ms Justice Moksha Khajuria Kazmi and Shri Justice Rahul Bharti were eminently suitable for appointment as permanent Judges of the High Court of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
