The Supreme Court collegium led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra has cleared names of 19 candidates for elevation as judges to various high courts and recommended names of 23 additional judges of different HCs for being made permanent. The Collegium notes in its resolution that it had received certain adverse but unconfirmed inputs against Pugalendhi, and therefore, kept his elevation on hold.

The collegium rejected the views of the Karnataka governor and chief minister expressing reservations on some of the names proposed by the high court. The Chief Minister and the Governor of the State of Tamil Nadu had also concurred. The judges noted that while recommending extension of his term as additional judge the Karnataka HC collegium "has not placed on record any material for not recommending him for appointment as permanent judge, though a permanent post is available".

The collegium found Justice Narendar G of Karnataka High Court "suitable for appointment as permanent judge", even though the HC Collegium had only recommended that his tenure as additional judge be extended for one year with effect from January 1, 2018.

Notably, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has "conveyed his disagreements" with the 10 names selected by the high court's collegium. The Governor, without specifying names, has conveyed that some of the candidates do not meet "requirement of efficiency in their performance".

With regard to Calcutta High Court, the collegium accepted the recommendation of the chief justice and gave its nod for the elevation of five lawyers as judges.

The Collegium also recommended five advocates for appointment as judges in the Karnataka High Court.

The apex court body said the high court collegium had taken into account merit, experience, performance, character and conduct of the recommended persons and dealt with adequate representation. Recommendation of one lawyer was rejected on the grounds he did not qualify the "income criterion". Advocates C Emalias, PT Asha, M Nirmal Kumar, Subramonium Prasad, Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy, N Anand Venkatesh, GK Ilanthiraiyan, Krishnan Ramasamy, and C Saravanan were elevated as judges of Madras High Court.

The Supreme Court Collegium has recommended nine advocates for appointment as judges in the Madras High Court out of a total list of 11 submitted before it. It turned down one name, as the person is past 55 years - the maximum prescribed for advocates recommended for elevation to HC. Intelligence Bureau, on verification, has reported that the above named recommendees enjoy a good personal and professional image and nothing adverse has come to notice against their integrity. The Collegium, on the same day, recommended advocate Arindam Lodh for appointment as judge in the Tripura High Court.
