His name has been cleared by the Supreme Court in the 40% quota for filling up high court judges' posts through promotion among the district and sessions judges in Punjab and Haryana. Rest 60% judges' posts are filled from practising advocates. Now, the strength of high court judges will reach 48 against the sanctioned strength of 68.
