President Appoints Justice NV Ramana as Next Chief Justice of India

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2021-04-06

President of India, Ram Nath Kovind on Monday signed off on appointment of Justice NV Ramana as the next Chief Justice of India (CJI).

 

Justice Ramana, who will be the 48th CJI, was appointed to the Supreme Court on February 17, 2014.

 

He will take over as CJI on April 24, 2021 after the retirement of incumbent CJI SA Bobde on April 23.

 

Justice Ramana's name was recommended by CJI SA Bobde to take over the country's highest judicial office, in line with the seniority norm followed by Supreme Court in appointing CJIs.

 

Justice Ramana will have a considerably long tenure as CJI with over 16 months at the helm before he retires on August 26, 2022. In fact, it will be the longest tenure as Chief Justice of India for nearly a decade. Late Justice SH Kapadia was the last judge to have had a longer tenure lasting from May 2010 to September 2012.

 

Recently, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had written to CJI Bobde complaining about Justice NV Ramana in connection with the Amaravati land scam.

 

However, the Supreme Court, after following an in-house procedure to examine the allegations made by Reddy, dismissed the same.
