Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra has written to the government recommending Justice Ranjan Gogoi as his successor.


Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra has written to the government recommending Justice Ranjan Gogoi as his successor. As per convention, the outgoing Chief Justice sends the recommendation for his successor to the government 30 days before he is to demit office so that the Chief Justice-designate is named well in time. CJI Misra leaves office on October 2.

The Union Law Ministry had last week written to the Chief Justice requesting him to recommend the name of his successor. If the recommendation is cleared by the Central government, Justice Gogoi will be administered the oath of office by President Ram Nath Kovind on October 3.
