Justice Arup Kumar Goswami was today sworn in as the Chief Justice (CJ) of the Andhra Pradesh High Court.

Justice Goswami was transferred from the Sikkim High Court a few days ago, and replaced Justice J K Maheswari, who was appointed as the Chief Justice of the Sikkim High Court.

AP Governor Biswa Bhushan Harichandan administered the oath of office to the incoming chief justice, in the presence of Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, at a brief swearing-in ceremony held at the Tummalapally Kala Kshetram in Vijaywada.

The CM then participated in a meeting with the new CJ.

Chief Secretary Adityanath Das, some judges of the high court, several MPs and other government officials also took part in the ceremony.

Goswami began his career as an advocate with the Bar Council of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura in 1985. He then served as an additional judge at the Assam High Court for some time, after which he was made the acting CJ of the court. The judge was then transferred to the Sikkim High Court.

A new Chief Justice was recently appointed to the Telangana High Court as well. Delhi High Court judge Hima Kohli was appointed as the the state's new Chief Justice on December 31, 2020. She is the first woman to be appointed to the post of Chief Justice in the history of the two Telugu-speaking states.
