Nine new Supreme Court judges, including three women judges, were administered their oath of office by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana. This is the first time in the history of India's highest court that nine judges have been sworn in at one time. After the historic oath today, the Supreme Court now has four women judges, the highest number of sitting women judges the Supreme Court has ever had. Among them is Justice BV Nagarathna, who is in line to become the first woman Chief Justice of India in 2027. In an interview to NDTV, Justice Usha Mehra (retired), former judge of the Delhi High Court, says, "It is so good to hear that a woman judge will be the CJI (Chief Justice of India). These women have been elevated not because of seniority but merit."
