The Supreme Court of India, in New Delhi

This is a list of judges of the Supreme Court of India, the highest court in the Republic of India. The list is ordered according to seniority. There are currently 33 judges (including the Chief Justice of India) and maximum possible strength is 34. As per the Constitution of India, judges of the Supreme Court retire at age of 65.[1]

In August 2021, the President signed the warrant of appointments of 9 judges, including 3 women, to the Supreme Court, taking the total number of judges to 33, the most since India's independence, against the sanctioned strength of 34.[2] It was also the first instance that nine judges to the Supreme Court took oath at once.[3]

Justice N. V. Ramana is the 48th Chief Justice of India. He was sworn in on 24 April 2021.[4]
