Sources in the government said a final nod of the Appointments Committee of Cabinet on the four names is likely next week.
After Ranjit Kumar resigned as the solicitor general in October last year, the key post has been lying vacant and so far there is no word from the law ministry on who would be appointed to that post.
P S Patwali and N K Kaul had decided against a second term as additional solicitors general when their terms had ended in July last.
Maninder Singh, Tushar Mehta, P S Narasimha, Pinky Anand and Atmaram Nadkarni are the other ASGs.
Besides attorney general K K Venugopal, five ASGs represent the Centre in the apex court. There are nine other ASGs who are looking after various high courts.
