This chapter describes the Ray Court of 1973–77. The announcement that A.N. Ray would be the next CJI came late in the afternoon of 25 April 1973, Sikri’s last day as CJI. Fourth in seniority, Ray was vaulted over the heads of J.M. Shelat, K.S. Hegde, and A.N. Grover, all of whom immediately submitted their resignations. This supersession provoked an immediate and nationwide expression of outrage. There was there was sufficient evidence for Mohan Kumaramangalam, the most suspected architect for the decision, to believe that Ray was likely to be supportive of Indira Gandhi’s social and economic reform policies. Ten new judges were sworn in during Ray’s tenure. They were Prafullachandra Natvarlal Bhagwati, Vaidyanathapuram Rama Ayyar Krishna Iyer, Parbati Kumar Goswami, Ranjit Singh Sarkaria, Alak Chandra Gupta, Nand Lall Untwalia, Syed Murtaza Fazal Ali, Prakash Narayan Shinghal, Jaswant Singh, and Palapatti Sadaya Goundar Kailasam.

Keywords:   Indira Gandhi, A.N. Ray, Mohan Kumaramangalam, Prafullachandra Natvarlal Bhagwati, Vaidyanathapuram Rama Ayyar Krishna Iyer, Parbati Kumar Goswami, Ranjit Singh Sarkaria, J.M. Shelat
