The Supreme Court on Wednesday said it had received a communication from the Ministry of Law and Justice on the Collegium's recommendation, elevating Justice Akil Kureshi as the Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court. 

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the communication of the ministry would be placed before the Collegium to take a call on it. 

The bench, also comprising justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer, deferred the hearing on a plea moved by the Gujarat High Court Bar Association, which has sought a direction to the Centre to notify the elevation of Justice Kureshi.
