This chapter describes the Wanchoo Court of 1967–8. K.N. Wanchoo, the only member of the ICS and the only judge without a law degree or status as a barrister to reach the nation’s pinnacle judicial post, served as CJI for ten and a half months — from K. Subba Rao’s resignation on 11 April 1967 — until his own sixty-fifth birthday on 25 February 1968. Before resigning Subba Rao had, with Wanchoo’s concurrence, recommended that his replacement be Kawdoor Sadananda Hegde, who had recently been transferred from the Mysore High Court to become the chief justice of the Delhi and Himachal Pradesh High Court. With the appointment of Hegde, Mysore gained its first representative on the Court and Grover increased the Punjab representation to two. As Wanchoo approached retirement, he recommended Amar Nath Grover as his replacement. Grover was fifty-five and third in seniority on the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

Keywords:   ICS, Kawdoor Sadananda Hegde, Amar Nath Grover, Subba Rao, Punjab
