The Centre has accepted recommendation of the Supreme Court collegium led by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana to elevate Gauhati High Court Chief Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia and Gujarat High Court Judge, Justice Jamshed Burjor Pardiwala as Supreme Court judges.

Justice Pardiwala would go forward to turn out to be the Chief Justice of India. He would be the fourth Parsi to adorn the bench of the Supreme Court. He may have a tenure of about two years and three months as Chief Justice of India.

Justice Dhulia’s paternal grandfather Bhairav Dutt Dhulia was a freedom fighter and was sentenced to seven years in jail for his participation within the ‘Quit India Movement’ (he served a jail sentence for about three years, earlier than he was launched, together with different freedom fighters). He was a Sanskrit scholar and an Ayurvedacharya.

His father Justice Keshev Chandra Dhuliya was a Judge at Allahabad High Court. (With company inputs)
