This chapter describes the Hidayatullah Court of 1968–70. It claims that it was fitting that M. Hidayatullah, a highly energetic and strong personality whose intellect and leadership qualities inspired respect and awe from colleagues, and a man who looked like he was born to be CJI, would reach the pinnacle of judicial heights. His tenure embraced important political events, including the 1969 split in the Congress party and the battle over the presidency, and controversy over decisions of the court which rejected major policy initiatives of Indira Gandhi’s government, particularly the Bank Nationalization and Privy Purses decisions in 1970. Three new judges joined the SCI during his reign and all three were sworn in on 1 August 1969. These were Ajit Nath Ray of the Calcutta High Court, Pingle Jaganmohan Reddy of the Andhra Pradesh High Court, and Inder Dev Dua of the Delhi and Himachal Pradesh High Court.

Keywords:   Ajit Nath Ray, Pingle Jaganmohan Reddy, Inder Dev Dua, M. Hidayatullah, Indira Gandhi, Bank Nationalization, Privy Purses
