Justice Vikram Nath today bid farewell to the Gujarat High Court and is slated to assume office as a Supreme Court judge next week.

In view of the same, the President has now appointed the senior most judge of the Gujarat High Court, Justice Vineet Kothari, to perform the duties of the office of Chief Justice with effect from the date on which Chief Justice Nath relinquishes office.

Given that Justice Kothari will reach superannuation on September 2, the President has further appointed the next senior most High Court Judge, Justice RS Chhaya as Acting Chief Justice of Gujarat High Court from September 2, 2021.
