Justice Ghandikota Sri Devi be Transferred from Allahabad to Telangana HC, the Collegium Recommends


The transfer of Justice Ghandikota Sri Devi to the Telangana High Court from the Allahabad High Court has been endorsed by the Supreme Court Collegium. She is currently serving as additional judge at Allahabad High Court.

Originally hailing from Andhra Pradesh, Justice Devi, had made a request for the transfer in February this year. The Collegium acceded to the same and decided to transfer her to the Telangana High Court for better administration of justice. Justice Ghandikota Sri Devi was appointed an Additional District and Session Judge at Jhansi in 2005, and went on to serve as a Principal Judge of the Family Court at Jhansi between 2008 and 2009. She presided over special courts for CBI cases and special courts under the SC/ST Act and Essential Commodities Act prior to her elevation to the High Court. She was appointed an additional judge of the Allahabad High Court in November 2018.

If the central government clears her proposed transfer, the Telangana High Court will have 13 judges, including Acting Chief Justice R.S. Chauhan.
