The nine newly appointed judges of the Supreme Court will assume office on Tuesday, August 31 with Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana administering them the oath of office at 10.30 AM.
In a departure from the usual practice of holding the ceremony in CJI's courtroom, tomorrow's ceremony will be held in the new auditorium of the Supreme Court in the additional building complex near the Pragati Maidan metro station.
This is to ensure adherence to COVID protocol.
According to a press release issued by the top court, this will be the first time in the 70-year history of the Court that nine new judges will take oath in one go.
The nine judges are Justices Abhay Shreeniwas Oka, Vikram Nath, Jitendra Kumar Maheshwari, Hima Kohli, BV Nagarathna, CT Ravikumar, MM Sundresh, Bela Trivedi and Senior Advocate PS Narsimha.
