Recommend successor's name: Law Ministry asks CJI

The Union law ministry is learnt to have asked Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra to suggest name of his successor.

In fact, a letter to this effect has been reportedly delivered to the CJI, who is set to retire from office on October 2, this year.

CJI Misra is expected to send his reply within a few days, likely by September 2, exactly a month before he retires.

Conventionally, the outgoing CJI usually recommends the name of the second-senior most judges of the Supreme Court as the succeeding Chief Justice of India.

And, if this practice is followed, then Justice Ranjan Gogoi will become the next CJI. Justice Gogoi was elevated to the Apex Court in April 2012, and is due to retire in November 2019.
