CHENNAI: The Bench and the Bar on Wednesday accorded a warm welcome to Justice Indira Banerjee, who has been appointed as the new Chief Justice of the Madras High Court.
Those who offered felicitations to her included Advocate-General R Muthukumaraswamy, TN Bar Council Chairman D Selvam, Madras High Court Advocates’ Association president G Mohanakrishnan,
Madras Bar Association president R Shanmugasundaram and Women Lawyers’ Association president S Nalini.

In her reply, CJ Indira Banerjee said she felt proud to be appointed as the Chief Justice of the High Court which has a great heritage. The heritage causes additional burden on her shoulder. Tamil is one of the longest surviving classical language and she is really glad that she is now bestowed with the opportunity to actually live in the State.
This High Court has produced many legal luminaries and contributed to the development of law. Its path breaking judgments in many branches of law are being extensively cited in many other High Courts, including the ones at New Delhi and Calcutta.
It has many firsts to its credit. Muthuswamy Iyer was the first Indian Advocate-General and Bashyam Iyengar the first Indian Chief Justice of the High Court, she said.
