The judge who hails from an agricultural family in Andhra Pradesh was commissioned to the Andhra Pradesh High Court as a permanent judge in June 2000. Before he was promoted to the Supreme Court of India back in February 2014, he served as the Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court.

He was part of a bench that decided the suspension of the Internet in Jammu and Kashmir should be reviewed right away. He was also a part of the judicial panel that ruled that the Chief Justice’s office is subject to the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

” The Chief Justice of India should be appointed by the Supreme Court’s senior-most judge who is considered suitable to hold the position,” according to the rules for appointing members of the higher judiciary.

Justice Bobde succeeded Justice (retired) Ranjan Gogoi as India’s 47th Chief Justice in November 2019. He was a member of a five-judge constitution bench that issued a landmark ruling allowing the construction of a Ram Temple on the disputed site in Ayodhya.
