The President of India has accepted the resignation of Chief Justice of the Madras High Court, VK Tahilramani. The Ministry of Law and Justice has today notified the same.
Justice Tahilramani had tended her resignation on September 6 after the Supreme Court Collegium recommended that she be transferred to the Meghalaya High Court,
A resolution for her transfer was first passed on August 28, "in the interest of better administration of justice."
The abrupt proposal to transfer Chief Justice Tahilramani to the Meghalaya High Court had raised eyebrows, given that Justice Tahilramani was the senior-most judge among High Court judges in the country.
In the ensuing days, protest was registered over the controversial proposal from various quarters, including associations of the Madras Bar. On September 10, lawyers across Tamil Nadu also went on strike for one day.
