Justice Dipak Misra sworn in as India's Chief Justice”

The causelist uploaded on the Supreme Court website shows that Chief Justice Misra will be sharing the bench with justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud on Monday. President Ram Nath Kovind will preside over the oath taking ceremony.

According to reports, Justice Misra was nominated last month by CJI Khehar for the top judicial post.

He is the third Odia to hold the prestigious position after Justice Ranganath Mishra and Justice Gopal Ballav Pattanaik.

Misra (64), who takes over from JS Khehar, began his career on February 14, 1977, when he was enrolled as an advocate.

"He is affectionately energetic and has the ability to energise others because of his contagious vibrance", Justice Misra said. Justice Misra-headed benches have upheld the constitutional validity of Sections 499 and 500 of IPC providing for criminal defamation proceedings, as well as the death penalty for convicts in the gruesome Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case. He was also on the bench that rejected the appeal by 1993 serial blast convict Yakub Menon, seeking a stay on his death sentence.

Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court before he was elevated as a Supreme Court judge in 2011, Justice Misra had been described as a "pro-citizen judge" by his peers. In 1996, he was appointed as an Additional Judge of the Orissa High Court and a year later was transferred to the Madhya Pradesh High Court where he became a permanent judge.
