New Delhi/IBNS: Justice DY Chandrachud will take over as the Chief Justice of India from Nov 9, Law Minister Kiren Rijiju said Monday.

He also served as a Judge of the Bombay High Court from March 2000 to October 2013.

Justice Chandrachud was the Additional Solicitor General of India during 1998-2000.
