Yesterday (12 Aug.2021) Chief Justice of India N.V. Ramana bid farewell to Justice R.F.

With Justice Nariman's retirement, the Supreme Court will have only 25 judges against a sanctioned strength of 34 judges.

Nariman, an expert in Comparative Constitutional Law and Civil Law, practising law for the last 30 years and has more than 500 reported Supreme Court Judgments to his credit. He has written over 360 judgments with painstaking research. He has set up the Supreme Court Lawyers Welfare Trust which works for the welfare of lawyers and encourages young talent. He also served as a member of the Bar Council of India.

Honourable Justice R.F.Nariman has delivered several important judgments expanding the scope of fundamental rights jurisprudence, and settling the law in the field of arbitration and insolvency , during his seven year term as a judge of the Supreme Court of India.

Any term of tenure would not be enough for Justice Nariman. He has disposed of over 13,565 cases and delivered historic verdicts including the declaration of privacy as a fundamental right, setting aside of an IT Act provision empowering arrests, decriminalising consensual gay sex, and permitting women of all ages to enter Kerala's Sabarimala temple. His judgments reflect his erudition, clarity of thought and scholarly approach.
