NEW DELHI, April 28 - Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra is understood to have decided to urgently convene a meeting of the Collegium to reconsider the name of the Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice KM Joseph for elevation as a judge of the Supreme Court.
The government had on Friday returned the file to the Collegium which had recommended on January 10 Justice Joseph�s name for his elevation as an apex court judge.
However, the only question that remains is the availability of all the five judges of the Collegium as Justice Madan B Lokur, who is the member of the Collegium, was away from work on April 26 and 27 due to medical reasons.
If the quorum is complete, the Collegium meeting will be convened immediately, the official said. � PTI
