chief justice of india

Gogoi served as the 46th Chief Justice of India from October 3, 2018, to November 17, 2019. Before leaving the office, Gogoi had said that the issue of pendency of cases in Indian courts is used extensively to "pull down the institution".

The bench headed by him presided over many landmark cases and delivered some crucial judgments like Ayodhya title dispute, Rafale defence deal, entry of women into Sabarimala temple and bringing CJI in RTI Act ambit.

The nine-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde, passed the verdict on more than 50 review petitions challenging the top court's earlier judgment on the Sabarimala issue.

Going ahead in 2020, the Supreme Court is set to remain the centre stage of various high-stakes cases including the challenge to the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde was on Monday sworn-in as the 47th Chief Justice of India (CJI) by President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi.

Justice Bobde was elevated to the bench of the Bombay High Court on March 29, 2000, as an Additional Judge. He was sworn in as Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court on October 16, 2012.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi upheld the 2010 Delhi High Court verdict and dismissed the three appeals filed by Secretary-General of the Supreme Court and the Central Public Information officer of the apex court.

The Prime Minister outlined that the verdict is notable because "it highlights that any dispute can be amicably solved in the spirit of due process of law, it reaffirms the independence, transparency and farsightedness of our judiciary and it clearly illustrates everybody is equal before the law".

A Bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi will pass verdict on a batch of pleas challenging the constitutional validity of Finance Act, 2017 on the ground that it was passed by the Parliament as a Money Bill.
