This chapter describes the Sinha Court of 1959–64. P.B. Sinha became CJI on 1 October 1959. In personnel terms, the Sinha years were the most stable the SCI has ever experienced. He had nothing to do with this for most of the judges he inherited were relatively young men. Sinha was the first retiring CJI who did not leave a replacement for himself. In 1960, the Court’s strength was increased from eleven to fourteen judges. These new judgeships were filled quickly in 1960. Raghubar Dayal, sworn in on 27 July 1960, was the most senior associate judge on the Allahabad High Court. Narisimha Rajagopala Ayyangar had reached retirement age from the Madras High Court eight months before he became an SCI judge on the same day as Dayal. Janardhan Raghunath Mudholkar, sworn in on 3 October 1960, was fifty-eight and the seniormost judge of the Bombay High Court.
