According to Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, “Out of the 77 names recommended by the collegium, only 34 have been cleared by the government for appointment as high court judges.

It may recalled that earlier last month, the Supreme Court had warned the government at Centre for not appointing judges to various high courts despite recommendations made by collegiums in this regard.

The apex court had earlier said, "There should not be a deadlock in appointment of judges. You (Centre) cannot bring the institution to a grinding halt."

Chief Justice of India TS Thakur had also warned the government in last hearing and directed it to pass an order and fasten accountability if the logjam continued.
