SC to witness all women bench, hold court on September 5

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court of India will witness an all-women bench comprising Justices R Banumathi and Indira Banerjee will hold court on September 5. History is said to repeat itself as the Supreme Court saw an all-women bench for the first time in 2013 when Justices Gyan Sudha Misra and Ranjana Prakash Desai sat together for hearing a case.

Among the three sitting women judges, Justice Banumathi is the senior-most and was elevated to the apex  court on August 13, 2014. Justice Fathima Beevi was the first ever woman judge in the top court.

With the swearing-in of Justice Banerjee in August, the court for the first time has three sitting women judges. She is the eighth woman judge in the apex court since Independence.
