Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh): The Supreme Court’s Collegium headed by Chief Justice NV Ramana has recommended the name of senior advocate Pushpendra Kaurav to be elevated as a High Court Judge.

In the meetings held recently, on August 25 and September 1, the Supreme Court’s collegium considered the names of 112 candidates including 82 from the bar and 31 from the judicial service. Among those 68 cleared for 12 High Courts.
