A special bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde and Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Surya Kant said, "Why higher judiciary. We think time has come when a woman should be Chief Justice of India." The Supreme Court on April 15th said that time has come when a woman should be Chief Justice of India and stressed that there is no attitudinal change. The top court said that it always has the interest of women in mind and its every collegium considers women for appointment as judges in higher judiciary. Not a single woman judge has figured in the list of 48 Chief Justice of India including the CJI designate NV Ramana, since it came into existence on January 26, 1950.
