How Supreme Court chooses the Chief Justice of India
•The Chief Justice of India is traditionally appointed by the outgoing Chief Justice of India on the day of his (or her) retirement.
[By convention, the outgoing Chief Justice of India selects the most senior then-sitting Supreme Court judge.]
•Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has recommended Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde as his successor and the 47th Chief Justice of India in keeping with convention and the seniority norm.
•Article 124(1) of the Indian Constitution says "there shall be a Supreme Court of India consisting of a Chief Justice of India”.
•The procedure is initiated by the Law Minister seeking the recommendation of the outgoing CJI at the ‘appropriate time’, which is near to the date of retirement of the incumbent CJI.
•The CJI sends his recommendation to the Law Ministry; and in the case of any qualms, the CJI can consult the collegium regarding the fitness of an SC judge to be elevated to the post.
