In view of the lockdown, the Supreme Court has decided to conduct a virtual farewell function for Justice Deepak Gupta on May 6, 2020.

The Executive Committee of the Supreme Court Bar Association has intimated that the function will be held at 4.30 PM on Wednesday, and will be presided by Chief Justice SA Bobde.

This is the first time that the Supreme Court will conduct a farewell via video conferencing. Last week, the Kerala High Court had also bid farewell to Justice CK Abdul Rahim via video-conferencing, and had live-streamed the entire event.

Justice Deepak Gupta obtained his degree in law from the Delhi University in 1978 and practiced in the Himachal Pradesh High Court.

He was appointed as a Judge there in October, 2004 and he remained the Acting Chief Justice of the High Court twice. He headed the Green Bench of the High Court for three years. He also served as the Executive Chairman of the H.P. State Legal Services Authority and the President of the H.P. Judicial Academy, Shimla for more than three years. He also headed the Committee on Computerization of the Courts in Himachal Pradesh.

In March 2013, he took oath as the first Chief Justice of the Tripura High Court. In May 2016, he was transferred and took oath as the Chief Justice of High Court of Chhattisgarh.

He was elevated as a Supreme Court Judge on February 17, 2017.
