New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday signed a warrant appointing Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde as the next Chief Justice of India (CJI).

Justice Bobde will take oath as CJI on November 18. The oath will be administered by President Kovind. Justice Bobde would be become the 47th CJI and is expected to demit office on April 23, 2021.

Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi had recommended the name of the next senior-most judge in the Supreme Court pecking order, Justice Bobde, as his successor as per convention.

A judge since 2000, Justice Bobde joined the Bombay High Court as an additional judge. He was nominated by the 39th Chief Justice Altamas Kabir as the Madhya Pradesh High Court Chief Justice in October 2012. In April 2013, he was elevated to Supreme Court by Justice Kabir.

He was part of the five-judge constitution bench which just concluded hearing the Babri Masjid land dispute.

Gogoi will retire from his post on November 17, just a day before Justice Bobde takes oath.
