Centre Appoints Dr. Bidyut Ranjan Sarangi as Chief Justice of Jharkhand High Court

In a significant judicial appointment, the Government of India has elevated Justice Dr. Bidyut Ranjan Sarangi, currently serving as a judge of the High Court of Orissa, to the position of Chief Justice of the Jharkhand High Court. This announcement was made official by the Ministry of Law and Justice earlier today.

Justice Sarangi, known for his distinguished legal acumen and extensive experience in the judiciary, will succeed Justice Ravi Ranjan, who recently retired. His appointment comes at a crucial time as the Jharkhand High Court faces a substantial backlog of cases and other administrative challenges.

Justice Sarangi’s career in the judiciary has been marked by notable judgments and contributions to legal scholarship. Prior to his tenure at the Orissa High Court, he had a successful stint as an advocate, specializing in constitutional and commercial law. His elevation to the High Court bench was widely acclaimed, reflecting his deep understanding of the law and commitment to justice.

Colleagues and legal experts have expressed confidence in Justice Sarangi’s ability to lead the Jharkhand High Court effectively. “Dr. Sarangi’s appointment is a testament to his exemplary service and dedication to the judiciary. We are confident that he will bring about significant positive changes in the Jharkhand High Court,” said a senior advocate from the Orissa High Court.

The appointment also underscores the Centre’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the judiciary by appointing experienced and capable judges to leadership positions. Dr. Sarangi’s expertise is expected to aid in expediting the adjudication process and improving the overall efficiency of the Jharkhand High Court.

As Justice Sarangi prepares to take on this new role, his colleagues in the Orissa High Court have extended their best wishes. A farewell ceremony is being planned to honor his contributions and bid him a warm farewell.
