Sr. Advocate Saurabh Kirpal - the lawyer we all want to see as a Judge, while govt sits on his recommendation

26 Nov 2022

Of the 14 lawyers recommended by the Delhi high court collegium for judgeship after 2017, when Saurabh Kirpal’s name was proposed, 13 have been appointed as judges in the high court

The Union government has sat on a recommendation for the elevation as judge of senior advocate Saurabh Kirpal while clearing the appointments of more than a dozen other lawyers whose names were recommended by the Delhi high court collegium much later -- a delay that has extended the wait for an openly gay person to become a judge of an Indian constitutional court. Of the 14 lawyers recommended by the Delhi high court collegium for judgeship after 2017, when Kirpal’s name was proposed, 13 have been appointed as judges in the high court. Kirpal was also one of the leading lawyers in the landmark Navtej Singh Johar case that led to the Supreme Court decriminalising homosexuality in 2018.

It was in October 2017 that the Delhi high court unanimously recommended Kirpal for appointment as a judge but the Intelligence Bureau (IB), which was tasked with a background check on Kirpal, came out with adverse reports in 2018 and 2019, suggesting Kirpal’s partner, who is a European national, might pose a security risk.

IB’s objections prompted the Supreme Court collegium to defer its final decision on Kirpal’s recommendation on three different occasions — in January 2019, April 2019, and August 2020.

He’s the son of Bhupinder Nath Kirpal, who served as the Chief Justice of India in 2002. He studied law at Oxford and Cambridge Universities and has been practising for over two decades.

The Supreme Court Collegium’s recommendation comes nearly three years after it first considered Kirpal’s candidature in 2018, after the Delhi High Court collegium headed by Justice Gita Mittal had recommended Kirpal to be appointed as a judge in October 2017. The SC collegium then deferred its decision on Kirpal’s recommendation on three other occasions — in January 2019, April 2019 and in August last year.
