Hyderabad | 7th January 2021
Delhi High Court judge Hima Kohli, recently appointed the new Telangana High Court Chief Justice, was today formally inducted to the post at a swearing-in ceremony at the Raj Bhavan, which wore a festive look on the occasion.

Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan administered the oath of office to the incoming Chief Justice.

Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao also attended the ceremony, and conveyed his good wishes to Kohli and presented her with a bouquet of flowers.

Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, Chairman of the Legislative Council G Sukender Reddy, and several state cabinet ministers, MPs, MLAs and judges were also present at ceremony.

Kohli was appointed as the new Telangana High Court Chief Justice on December 31, replacing Chief Justice R S Chauhan, who was made the Chief Justice of the Jharkhand High Court. The appointment is of historic importance as Kohli is the first woman Chief Justice in the history of the two Telugu-speaking states.

Kohli had previously served as a standing counsel for the Delhi Municipal Council in the Delhi High Court between 1994 and 2004, a member of the Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA), and an additional judge in the Delhi High Court. She has also been serving as the Executive Chairman of the DSLSA since May, 2020, and as a member of National Law University Governing Council since June, 2020.
