The 64-year-old judge will assume office following the retirement of Justice J S Khehar yesterday. The new CJI was all praise for Justice Khehar, saying: "Justice J S Khehar is a man with a democratic attitude. He has a good heart, a creation of a good mind which is capable of transmitting good thought and energy. He is affectionately energetic and has the ability to energise others because of his contagious vibrance." 

Justice Misra will remain in office until October 2, 2018.
