It is learnt that CJI Gogoi who started his tenure by paying his respects at Rajghat will do so again at the end of his tenure.
Five-judge Constitution bench led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi will pass the verdict after hearing the pleas of the three main parties to the case.
As an institutional courtesy, the Gauhati High Court has decided to provide some facilities to Ranjan Gogoi as he will stay in the Assam capital.
During the hearing, the Chief Justice restated that the bench is already hard-pressed for time and parties attempting to breach the deadline "will be at their own peril."
At present, there used to be only two-division benches having two judges in the Supreme Court to decide all category of cases.
A five-judge constitution bench headed by the CJI is hearing the Ayodhya land dispute case.
Supreme Court Justice Ramana had refused to provide any interim relief but said he would send the case to the CJI Ranjan Gogoi who would list it before an appropriate bench.
Attorney General KK Venugopal said there should be distinct judges constituting the court of appeal and the collegium system of the apex court should be the basis of their appointment too.
CJI Ranjan Gogoi said that there are around 1,000 pending cases which are 50 years, and about two lakh pending cases which are 25 years old.
CJI told the judges to remember that public faith and confidence, on which the institution lives and survives, is largely built on the basis of court orders and judgements.
