Justice Ranjan Gogoi on Wednesday was sworn in as the 46th Chief Justice of India.
President Ram Nath Kovind administered the oath to 63-year-old Justice Gogoi at a brief ceremony in Rashtrapati Bhavan’s Darbar Hall.
Justice Gogoi, who succeeds Justice Dipak Misra in the post of the Chief Justice of India, will have a tenure of a little over 13 months and would retire on November 17, 2019.
Justice Gogoi was among the four senior judges of the top court who had questioned his predecessor’s allocation of politically-sensitive cases to benches headed by “junior” judges of the Supreme Court.
