The private secretary, in addition to discharging other responsibilities that may be entrusted to him, may also coordinate with the Registry for any protocol-related requirements. A nodal officer be identified from the Registry so as to coordinate with the private secretary so appointed, stated the court’s resolution.

In its proposal, the Protocol Committee wrote, “…Honourable Mr Justice Ranjan Gogoi practised in the Gauhati High Court at Guwahati. It is a matter of great honour and privilege for this high court that an advocate, who had practised here, has been elevated to the highest office of the judiciary in the country and has served the institution and the country with distinction in the highest position…
