Justice Gurmeet Singh Sandhawalia to Temporarily Head Punjab and Haryana High Court

The Ministry of Law and Justice announced the appointment of new Chief Justices for several High Courts in India on Friday.

For the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the situation differs slightly:

  • No Permanent Appointment: Unlike other High Courts, a permanent Chief Justice wasn’t announced for Punjab and Haryana.
  • Acting Role: Justice Gurmeet Singh Sandhawalia, currently a Judge at the High Court, will perform the duties of the Chief Justice until further notice.
  • Previous Leadership: Justice Ritu Bahri, who was previously acting as Chief Justice, has been elevated to lead the Orissa High Court.

Implications:

  • While Justice Sandhawalia assumes temporary leadership, the search for a permanent Chief Justice for the Punjab and Haryana High Court will likely continue.
  • The High Court plays a crucial role in overseeing legal matters related to the states of Punjab and Haryana, so the appointment of a permanent Chief Justice is considered significant.
