He will be the third person from Odisha to be appointed as the Chief Justice of India. Justice Misra will retire on October 2, 2018.
Dipak Misra was first enrolled as an advocate in Orrisa High Court in 1977 where he served in the services tribunal. Justice Misra may take the oath as next CJI on August 28.
Justice Misra is now presiding over a bench hearing the Cauvery and Krishna river water disputes, BCCI reforms and Sahara case among others. As per reports, Justice Dipak Misra will be the next Chief Justice of India.
Justice Misra helmed the bench which upheld the death penalty of the four convicts accused in the December 2012 Delhi gangrape.
Further, the judgment, ordering mandatory playing of the national anthem in movie theatres-which brought the court both favour and criticism-was also delivered by him along with his fellow judges. In December 1997, he was appointed a permanent judge of the Madhya Pradesh HC.
The soft-spoken Justice Misra rose to prominence when he heard the plea of Yakub Memon, the sole condemned man in the Bombay blasts case, for a reprieve in the early hours of the morning.
Notably, after Justice Khehar announced his decision to recommend Justice Misra as his successor, Adish C Aggarwala, president of the International Council of Jurists, had argued that his appointment as the next CJI would "severely compromise the independence of the judiciary".
