Indira Banerjee, who was born on September 24, 1957, went to Loreto House in Kolkata for her education. She subsequently moved on to Presidency College for her Bachelor’s degree, and then on to Calcutta University for law school. In July 1985, she began working as a lawyer at Calcutta High School.
On February 5, 2002, she was named to the Calcutta High Court as a permanent judge. She was sent to the Delhi High Court in August of 2016. In April 2017, she succeeded Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul as Chief Justice of the Madras High Court. Following Justice Kanta Kumari Bhatnagar, Justice Banerjee is the second woman to lead the chartered High Court.
Justice Banerjee’s name was suggested for elevation to the Supreme Court by the Supreme Court Collegium on July 16, and the Centre accepted it yesterday.
Justice Banerjee is the Supreme Court’s eighth female judge.

In addition, she releases a new album. With Justice R Banumathi and Justice Indu Malhotra already on the Supreme Court, Justice Indira Banerjee’s appointment brings the total number of female judges on the court to three, a number that has never been reached since the court’s creation in 1950.

In the judiciary, more women are needed.
It’s past time for those in charge of appointing judges to the high court and the Supreme Court to recognise the need of providing enough representation for women in the judiciary. Without diluting merit, the superior judiciary should have reserved seats for women, similar to the subordinate judiciary.
We should be concerned about more than just the economic consequences of the dearth of female (judges) in the employment. Women at all levels of the judiciary are critical in addressing certain issues that can have far-reaching social and political consequences: one, insufficient representation in the courts can exacerbate biases; second, a lack of women in courts raises questions about the courts’ legitimacy as representatives of the societies they serve; and third, the presence of women judges signals equality of opportunity for women.
