new Delhi. The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a notice to the Central Government on a petition to change the name of ‘Bombay High Court’ to ‘Maharashtra High Court’. Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde, Justice A.M. s. A division bench of Bopanna and Justice Hrishikesh Roy issued notice to the central government and others on a petition by a former judge VP Patil. The court conducted the hearing through video conferencing.
The petitioner has sought directions to the Bombay High Court to change its name. Patil has argued in his petition that the word ‘Maharashtra’ has special significance in the lives of the residents of Maharashtra and that the name of the High Court should also be removed from Bombay to Maharashtra.
The petitioner states that the confusion arising over names having a high court like the name of the state will be reduced. The same name of the High Court and the state is in the public interest.
