Senior advocate Indu Malhotra was today administered the oath of office as a Supreme Court (SC) judge by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra, making her the first woman lawyer to enter the top judiciary directly. Malhotra's name was recommended by the collegium for elevation along with that of Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice K M Joseph, but the Centre has sought reconsideration of the proposal for the latter. Malhotra would be the seventh woman judge in the top court since Independence. Other women judges were elevated to the apex court from high courts.
