This chapter describes the Gajendragadkar Court of 1964–6. P.B. Gajendragadkar learned on 21 October 1963 that he would succeed Sinha and become CJI on 1 February 1964. Gajendragadkar had nine colleagues when he became CJI. There were three retirements and five new appointments during his regime. The new appointments include Sarv Mittra Sikri, Ranadhir Singh Bachawat, Vaidyanathier Ramaswami, Penmetsa Satyanarayana Raju, and Jayendra Manilal Shelat. Sikri was a significant appointment, for he was not only the first to come directly from the bar but was the youngest of the Gajendragadkar’s group and would later have a relatively long tenure as CJI. When Gajendragadkar’s tenure ended on 16 March 1966, he left the court at the de facto full strength of eleven — his successor Sarkar and ten associate judges.
