(p.364) XI Arrival on the High Court
Judges of the Supreme Court of India

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the judges’ arrival to the high court. Appointment to the high court came at an average age of 46.4. There was some variation among the high courts concerning the age for appointment. Those who came to the SCI from the Bombay High Court averaged forty-five years when appointed, while the average age at the time of high court appointment of those from the Madras High Court, who came to the SCI, was fifty-one. Those who were promoted to the SCI arrived with an average of 12.4 years of high court experience. The generational differences are significant — 10.9 years for the first and 13.6 for the second. S. Fazl Ali’s 19.2 years of service on the Patna High Court was the lengthiest, and T.L. Venkatarama Ayyar, with only 2.4 years, the least.
