Justice Aniruddha Bose Appointed As Chief Justice Of Jharkhand High Court [Read Notification]

The Centre on Friday appointed Calcutta High Court judge, Justice Aniruddha Bose as the Chief Justice of Jharkhand High Court.

Justice Bose, the senior-most Puisne judge of Calcutta High Court, did his LL.B. from Surendranath College of Law, Calcutta, and enrolled with the Bar Council of West Bengal as an Advocate in October, 1985. He was elevated to the Bench as a permanent judge in January 2004.

He was then recommended for elevation as the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court. His name was, however, returned by the Centre, with the observation that he does not have the experience to handle the affairs of a prominent High Court like Delhi.

The collegium had thereafter reconsidered its proposal, and had recommended that he be appointed as the Chief Justice of Jharkhand High Court instead. The resolution passed on July 16 said:

“Vide Minutes dated 10th January 2018, the Collegium had recommended the appointment of Mr. Justice Aniruddha Bose, senior puisne Judge of Calcutta High Court as Chief Justice of Delhi High Court. The Minister for Law & Justice, for the reasons mentioned in the file, has referred back the above recommendation for consideration of the Collegium.

The Collegium on reconsideration of the aforesaid recommendation and having regard to all the relevant factors resolves to recommend that Mr. Justice Aniruddha Bose be appointed as Chief Justice of the Jharkhand High Court instead of Delhi High Court.”
