Well, the President of India finally cleared the name of the successor of Justice Dipak Misra. Law ministry notification confirmed that Mr Kovind had appointed Justice Ranjan Gogoi as the next Chief Justice of India.

Justice Gogoi will join the office as Chief Justice of India on October 3, 2018, and will become 46th CJI. He will run the office till November 2019.

Justice Gogoi was born on November 18, 1954, and started his career as an advocate in 1978. He practised on taxation, constitutional and company matters in the Gauhati High Court and later was appointed as a Permanent Judge in the same court on February 28, 2001.

Justice Gogoi was transferred to the Punjab & Haryana High Court on September 9, 2010. He became Chief Justice of Punjab & Haryana High Court on February 12, 2011.

Justice Gogoi, the next CJI, had joined as a Judge of the Supreme Court of India on April 23, 2012.

As per the norms, CJI Dipak Mishra who will be retired soon recommended the name of Justice Ranjan Gogoi on September 4. The recommendation of the senior-most judge present in the Supreme Court as successor was processed to President Kovind to issue the warrant of appointment, which got approved on Thursday.

Earlier when media asked Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar about the next successor of the CJI Dipak, he said that one had the right to question the government’s intention on the appointment of the next CJI and the procedure for the appointment would be taken by the executive.

According to the Memorandum of Procedure, which states about the appointment of CJI, “appointment to the office of the Chief Justice of India should be of the senior-most judge of the Supreme Court considered fit to hold the office”.

The appointment of next CJI was questioned after the press conference was called by the court’s four most senior judges, Justices J Chelameswar (since retired), Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph and Justice Gogoi to criticise Justice Misra on several issues,  in January this year. It was first time in Indian History when a press conference was called for the negative purpose.
