Collegium recommends four SC judges

  1. The Supreme Court Collegium, led by Chief Justice of India, has recommended 4 names for appointment as judges of the Supreme Court
  2. The recommendations come after a 15-month hiatus since the appointment of Justice Amitava Roy to the Supreme Court in February 2015
  3. These would be the first appointments to the Supreme Court since the Collegium system of judicial appointments was restored.
  4. Background: A Constitution Bench had in October 2015 struck down the NJAC law meant to replace the 22-year-old Collegium system
  5. It intended to give an equal say to politicians in the appointment of judges to the Supreme Court and the High Courts.
  6. The appointments would increase the judicial strength of the Supreme Court from the present 25 to 29
