Chandru Former Judge Of Highcourt: Very rarely an additional judge is transferred before becoming permanent!it is not the case of justice kannan who went to P&H hc.It looks as if he was originally to be appointed in Delhi HC.Since that might not have been possible he was appointed here only to be shifted by transfer mode!Madras Hc has become launching pad for many and it looks like a transit house!!It is a pity that the Bar never discusses such issues!

[3/4, 18:01] K. Chandru Former Judge Of Highcourt: In service law there are several methods of appointing a person to a post.They are direct recruitment (e.g.Bar),promotion(e.g.service judges).But their there is yet another source .i.e.”transfer from other service”.This method is slowly entering in to the service of higher judiciary &it is not found in the Constitution.Justice MM Ismail was appointed in Delhi High court,when that court was created for the first time
.After an year he was appointed to our high court in( 1965).!! It was not an involuntary act.After 55 years there is a repeat performance in a reverse order!!!!
