Chandigarh, September 11

The President has appointed Rajesh Bhardwaj as an Additional Judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, taking the total number of judges to 55 against the sanctioned strength of 85.

Belonging to Barauli village in Panipat district, Bhardwaj’s name was approved by the Supreme Court collegium at a meeting on August 17.

The High Court is currently facing a shortage of 30 judges and a pendency of nearly six lakh cases. The problem is expected to worsen as two senior judges heading Division Benches are scheduled to retire in the next couple of months, followed by more next year.
